Ramos Pinto Velho-72 Port

From Ramos Pinto, "Velho-72" is believed to be an old Port of the Tawny style.

Tawny Port is a particular style of Port in which the fortified wines are aged for a number of years in small oak casks.  This process of deliberate and careful oxidative maturation imparts typical characteristics of stewed fruits, nuts and leather.  The wines do not age or improve further upon bottling.

We are informed that this Port was produced from pre-phyloxera era vines of the 1872 vintage, bottled in the 1950s - however we are entirely unable to confirm the validity of this information.
