Description

This lot contains twelve bottles of Quarles Harris 1977 Vintage Port. Founded in the late 1680, Quarles Harris are one of the oldest surviving Port shippers, and were family-owned until their purchase by the Symington family in the 1920s.

'Healthy ruby with a brick rim. Quite subtle already; there is some perceptible evolution of colour and flavour here. Mineral rather than fruit flavours dominate. Very big and full. Very, very sweet indeed - in fact I thought it was from a Portuguese house. This wine delivers a pretty good combination of power, interest and, especially, sweetness. This is not a wine to be ignored! But it's a very particular style....without enormous tannic reserves. 18/20 points' Jancis Robinson MW, 2005

Please note, these bottles have no size or abv stated but they appear to be 75cl bottles.

Condition

Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note general wear.

Please note, the original wooden box is included with the lot. The shipping charge can be reduced if this is not required.

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.
