Tasting Notes

The story

To add to the Crusted Port from Churchill Estates, I sought out this beautiful tawny port. It comes from an 18th Century wine estate in the Douro that uses several indigenous grapes and very modern wine-making techniques.

The wine

My full tasting note is coming soon.

Grape varieties include Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca.


This port is also available in a one bottle (gift) pack.

Food Pairing

Recommended on its own chilled before dinner, with rich nutty desserts or with Stilton and hard cheeses

Producer's Notes

"Aroma: Rich, combining dry fruit notes, praliné, orange confit and finalizing with some tobacco notes.
Taste: A very fresh, rich and velvety attack. Very persistent and complex finish."

"This was the pick of the 10 Year Olds for me and a wine that punches well above its weight as well as offering excellent value for money. Really delicious"

Light amber in color, offering delicious, elegant and fresh aromas and flavors of toffee, dried apricot, berry and spice. Finishes with orange zest and a hint of coconut. Stylish.

"The NV 10 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2014. It is an old vines field blend coming in at 110.4 grams per liter of residual sugar. Showing fine complexity for a 10, this adds a hint of treacle around the edges on opening and then becomes a classic 10--fresh and lively. It has a sweet conclusion, but the nice acidity keeps this on track. It's sunny demeanor and impeccable balance make it a pleasure to drink. There were 1,700 bottles (500ml) produced."
