1957 Port Wine

Question by: Albertina, New York, USA

Q:

Vinho do Porto desta safra (1957) é ainda considerado bom para beber?  Estou pensando em dar de presente para amigos que vao celebrar 55 anos de casados, Obrigado.

Is Port wine from 1957 still considered good to drink?  I am thinking of giving this as a present to friends who will celebrate 55 years of marriage.  Thanks.

A:

Very few shippers declared the 1957 Vintage, with some opting to create Quinta Vintage Ports instead. If it has been well cellared, the wine could still be interesting indeed, and would make a lovely gift. At recent tastings, Symington quinta vintage ports from 1958 and 1950 were showing well, although these vintages were also not widely declared.

Muito poucos produtores declararam o ano de 1957 como ano Vintage clássico, tendo alguns optado por produzir,em alternativa, vintage de Quinta.  Se a garrafa que possui tiver estado guardada em boas condições, o vinho será de qualidade e será decerto um belo a apreciado presente.  Numa prova recente, os vinhos vintage de Quinta 1958 e 1950, produzidos pela família Symington, provaram estar excelentes.
