1974 Wine and Port

1974 Wine Vintage Report

1974 Italian :

The 1974 wine vintage was celebrated as a great vintage at the time and is now considered to be very good. The 1974 vintage produced a large crop. It was close to 1964 but less quality. The 1974 summer was hot and dry and a mild autumn allowed the grapes to ripen fully. The wines produced are characterised as being fairly firm and tannic with low acidity but good, rich fruit. The harvest time was very long and lasted through November. The wines have reached full maturity but continue to hold.

1974 Bordeaux :

A massive crop was produced but the 1974 wines were hard and tannic and lacked the ripeness of the 1975 vintage. Although the wines will not improve further with age, they are still very drinkable.

1974 Vintage Port :

1974 Port. Some excellent single harvest colheitas were produced. For the vintage ports it was a moderate year that was not declared by the major port houses. Despite a huge crop, very few vintage port-wines were bottled from this year and the bottles are very rare.

1974 Fonseca Port

A gem that outshines the vintage, this is a dense and delicious port wine that shows some raisin and prune on the nose with wood hints and alcohol. On the palate, forest notes chime in with the forward fruits of cherries and black currants.
