Warre's Vintage Port 1985

Warre’s 1985 Vintage has a ruby red colour. Now 31 years old this
wine is wonderfully aromatic, packed with complex aromas of ripe
red and dark fruits with floral undertones. On the palate typically
Warre in style with tremendous elegance and finesse, packed with
dark fruit flavours such as black cherry and plums, and silky tannins
leading to a long and lingering finish. Drinking wonderfully now but
will continue to age gracefully for many years.

Warre's Vintage Port 1985

18 months after the 1985 harvest, the Vintage was formally ‘declared’ and at the time, Michael Symington wrote:
“The acid test of course, before any declaration of a Vintage is how the wines look after having passed through their
second winter, because it can often happen that young wines showing great promise fall off during the cold months
of their second winter, but happily the 1985s have come through with flying colours.”
FAMILY VINTAGE REPORT
In spite of the great heat the vineyards looked everywhere
remarkably green and fresh, due of course to the very wet winter
and spring. Never can the grapes have been gathered under better
weather conditions than this 1985 vintage now in its last stages.
Since early September we have enjoyed unbroken summer-like
weather with only one night of rain, which hardly laid the dust! The
overall quality of the 1985 Vintage will surely prove outstanding.
Michael Symington, Douro, October 1985
