Mazuran’s Vintage Port 1974 $P.O.A

Mazuran’s on Lincoln Road, West Auckland have been crafting port wines since the early 1940’s, and magnificently, have vintage ports still available to buy dating back to 1942.  They are the only New Zealand winery to distil its own grape brandy for fortifying its wines, many of which are made using 79-year-old vines.  79!  I purchased this bottle back in 2007 and it cost me $95.  It’s, dark, topaz-coloured, perfectly caramelised, nutty, luxuriously silky and creamy to drink.  It’s a crazy thing to be able to buy and drink something from your birth year.
Sip with: Who cares.  The port is the hero.
