“Peter used to say, ‘I want your dirty spirit!’ to the distiller. It used to be a big discussion – they wanted to give him clean spirit,” Margaret Lehmann mentioned to me as I tasted this wine. Deep brown with an amber rim, Saltram’s 1969 Vintage Port has a nose that is a bit reticent to begin, with roasted nuts, fruit cake and pure licorice; it is very spicy and briny. The palate is sweet, rich and unctuous with loads of layers and an epically long finish. There is also lovely lingering earthiness. Deliciously mature now, it should keep for many years yet.
Ripe rich and candied, this showed a clear toffee and honey character on the nose; red fruits, very silky tannins, long and full, deep and rich.
