1986 Dow's Vintage Port Quinta Do Bomfim - Bottled 1988 75cl / 20%
A bottle of Dow's 1986 Quinta do Bomfim single quinta Vintage Port, bottled in 1988 by Silva & Cosens Ltd.
Dow’s was one of the first Port companies to recognise the importance of vineyard ownership in Port production, with Quinta do Bomfim considered to be one of the finest properties in the Douro valley. Acquired in 1896, it is the oldest quinta (or wine farm) in continuous ownership and forms the heart of all Dow's full Vintage Ports, or as a stand alone bottling - as is the case here - in intervening years.

The Whisky.Auction team has inspected this lot and found it to be suitable for sale. However, please note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults. Older bottles often contain sediment. Wines are more fragile than spirits and older wines may be listed, at our discretion, for their historical interest rather than their drinkability. We can in no way guarantee that they are still within their plateau of maturity or to the buyer’s taste.
