1990 Wine Vintage Report

1990 Vintage Port :

Although it was not a general declaration, the 1990 Vintage produced abundant quantities of good quality port wine, a small amount of which was outstanding.

1990 Italian :

A spectacular vintage for Italy, one of the best in modern times. Most producers made very good wines at all levels. The wines are drinking well but will continue to develop with good cellaring.

1990 Bordeaux :

1990 was the third year in a row of excellent Bordeaux vintages. The hot, dry sunny year ensured that, like many of the great vintages, 1990 produced rich wines from across the Bordeaux region. Many of the red wines from this vintage have a roasted or baked quality derived from the hot sun ripening the grapes. The vintage is characterised by having a tannic quality coupled with low acidity. Most of the quality wines from this vintage are still at the peak of their maturity, making them great 29 year old wine gifts for a birthday or anniversary.

A rustic wine with blood, iron, earth, forest floor and even still some dark fruits. Good acidity with soft and mature tannin. Still a good bite and very lively.
