About this Item

1939 Tawny Port
1 (1 x 1) 750ml

KWV has been a traditional mainstay of the South African wine scene for decades. Founded in the same year Nelson Mandela was born, KWV has seen how the SA wine industry has changed over the years.

A time capsule of South African wine, dating back over 80 years. The tawny-styled KWV ports from the 20s, 30s and 40s have aged beautifully.

Critics Ratings

Produced from the Boberg region, this is a fully mature but ethereal port with wafts of cold coffee, nuts and spice, cloaked in sweet fruit. A delight. Roland Peens 93 points (2018)
