About this Item

1956 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.

Tawny Ports from exceptional vintages like 1956 have remarkable aging potential, evolving and gaining complexity over several decades in the bottle. KWV Tawny Port 1956 is a rare and sought-after wine, with limited availability.

Notes

Critics Ratings

'This was reportedly bottled after 20 years in barrel. Quite wild with some notes of oxidation, its more sherry-like in nature and structure. Savoury and nutty with dried fruit and alcoholic finish with just enough sweetness. Drink soon.' - Roland Peens, 91/100 (Oct 2018)
