For over 200 years, the name Dow has been associated with fine Port from the Upper Douro Valley. Dow’s are known for their superbly concentrated wines; intense and tannic when young, maturing to a superlative racy elegance with violet and mint aromas. Their distinctive drier finish is the hallmark of Dow’s Port wines.  Just 303 bottles released by Dow’s Port for the one and only time, no more were ever shipped. An irreplaceable wine in rare and unique 2.1 litre ‘Tappit Hen’ bottles. Each Tappit bottle has been hand-labelled and each numbered back label has been personally signed by Paul Symington.

Tasting Notes

James Suckling of the Wine Spectator tasted a Dow’s port over a hundred years after its bottling, an 1896, and described it as: “…an amazing ruby colour with a garnet edge, it smelled of raisins, black pepper and berries. It was full-bodied, with masses of fruit intertwined with layers of velvety tannins. It was superb.”
