Description

This lot contains six bottles of Dow's 1998 Quinta Senhora da Ribeira single quinta Vintage Port in a wooden presentation case with corkscrew.

1998 was the first vintage since the Symington family reacquired the property, having originally bought it back in 1890 before selling it in 1954 due to challenging trade conditions. In the intervening years Dow's purchased the fruit from the estate and continued to make the wine, with it forming the core of their vintage wines.

'Low yields produced potentially outstanding wines, prospects of a fully declared vintage dashed by rain during harvest; still very deep and youthful, opaque; not very expressive on the nose (just a phase in its evolution, I suspect); fine, dense, and tight knit, with some flesh, yet showing characteristic Dow austerity (2.95º Baumé), a dark-chocolate core (80% cocoa solids), and cast-iron tannins; big and solid with a fabulous, explosive finish.  Top-notch single-estate Port that would benefit from another 5 years in bottle. 18/20.' Richard Mayson, writing in 2012.

This 1998 Dow's Vintage Port Presentation Case sold at our online auction for £250

Condition

Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note general wear and scratches to the wooden box 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.
