product Details

Cockburn's 1955 Vintage Port

Vintage Port is a specific style of Ruby Port which is made only in exceptional years and from the ripest grapes.  The fermented wine is fortified before being aged for 2 years in massive oak vats which preserve the ripe fruit character.  Upon bottling, the wines continue to age and can reward patient maturation for many decades.

1955 Vintage; Bottled in 1957 under the label of Yorkshire wine merchant, John Lupton & Son.
