This 1,5 litre superior 1948 KWV port is a collector’s item that was released in limited numbers as a special edition in 1987 in celebration of the three-hundredth anniversary of KWV.

Winner in its class at the 2015 Challenge of the Port Producers Association (CAPPA) and Museum Class Gold Medallist.

Article in “Top Wine SA” dated 4 June 2015 (http://www.topwinesa.com/?p=2959):

‘Amazingly, in the Museum Class comprising ports made from grapes harvested more than 10 years ago and typically long since sold out ex-cellar, the winning wine, a KWV Tawny, is still available for purchase nearly 70 years down the line from the company’s Wine Emporium in Paarl – for R6500 a bottle!

 

Due to the age of the wine it is sold “as is” for collector purposes as the drinkability cannot be guaranteed.
