Quarles Harris 1983

Release Notes

Like the Smith Woodhouse 1983, an excellent and well balanced wine with a hint of the firmness which characterises Rio Torto wines.  Wine has an excellent bouquet, like all the 83s, and a trace of dryness.

Alcohol by volume v/v (20º C): 20%
Total Acidity g/l tartaric acid: 3.90
Baumé: 2.7

Tasting Notes

2006 tasting note year

Deep ruby red colour. On the nose with tight and concentrated aromas of plums, cherries, and lovely mint fruit. A good balanced tannic structure with many layers of intense fruit flavours on the palate.  Vintage Port at its best.

2000 tasting note year

Closed and brooding nose, with underlying intensity. Big palate; tough and tight, well structured, with lovely mint fruit; powerful; a classic.

Score: 5 Stars

Deep, intense, very flavoury.

James Suckling critic

Vintage Port (book, Suckling, 1990) source
1990 tasting note year

More elegance, power and class than the 1985.  Deep purple, with enchanting crème de framboise aromas, full-bodied, with an abundance of tannins and concentrated fruit flavours, slightly hard but with a very good, long finish.

Score: 89/100
