1922 Tuke Holdsworth

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

From Tom Archer. Identified from the capsule as having been bottled by William Smith of Bishop's Stortford and sealed with a cork branded "Tuke Holdsworth 1922".

Very dark in colour with a mature tone to the wine, 90% opaque. Fragrant and expressive on the nose, bringing dark cherry and library dust. A big wine on the palate, wonderful and powerful fruit - dark cherry and dark Christmas cake. The fruit is so impressive and young. A wonderful, rich Port tasting much more like a 1980 than a 1920. My wine of the night and the top or second wine of the night of everyone at the tasting. 97/100. Consumed 15-Dec-22. Decanted 3 hours.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.

50% opacity, clear dark red. Full rich mouthfeel, lovely deep red fruits - cherries. Wonderful port for this age.
