1960 Royal Oporto Colheita Real Companhia Velha - Bottled 1974 75cl
A bottle of 1960 Colheita Port from the region's oldest house – the Royal Oporto Wine Company (known in Portugal as Real Companhia Velha). This was bottled in 1974.
Colheita is the Portuguese word for ‘harvest’ and signifies a vintage-dated tawny. The wine must be from a single year and aged for a minimum of seven years in wood before bottling. In practice, many are aged for considerably longer.
Please note, there is no ABV stated on the labels.
Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note general wear.
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.
This bottle does not appear to be leaking. While we take every care to pack bottles securely we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit.
