For 350 years Warre’s has been a pioneer in the Port trade, from advances in the winery to viticultural research. It was one of the first Port houses to build a lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia in the 18th century, where – to this day - its wines age undisturbed until it’s time for bottling.
Warre’s Vintage Port 1994
“One of the finest Warres I have ever tasted, this opaque purple-colored wine is made in a drier style (a la Dow), yet it is expressive, extremely full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and well-integrated alcohol and tannin. It possesses a great mid-palate as well as impressive length. Tasters should take note of the wealth of peppery, licorice-scented and flavored raspberry and blackcurrant fruit. Look for it to be ready to drink in 10-12 years, and keep for 30+. This is a profound example of Warre vintage port”
