About This Wine...
“For Port aficionados, few vintages equal the grandeur and quality of 1977. Sure, there are time-honoured vintages such as 1963, 1945 and 1927, but most people consider 1977 to be the modern classic…now 30 years later, it’s time to enjoy them – if you haven’t already.”
94 points, James Suckling
A throwback to the 18th century, ‘The Tappit Hen’ holds 2.1L and is rarely seen commercially. Not released for sale before 2012, only 303 were ever bottled. Most people consider the 1977 to be a modern classic – “still a babe, fabulously scented, very rich and has a potential longevity of at least 30-50 years.”
