Offer SAVE OVER 15% | Only £295 | RSP £349

Description: We are delighted to offer a UK exclusive on Burmester Colheita Ports.


Reviews:
"(2015) Lovely dark caramel colour, with some truffle and tea notes, edges of olive and green fruits (fig). The maturity on the palate is obvious, again with fabulous sweetness and brown sugar richness, Muscovado and walnuts, but the hallmark of the fresh orange and lemon acidity plays against that and the coffee and walnut cake sweetness and richness."

Cockburn Port, 1955

Cockburn Port, 1955


Vintage Port
Description: Popped and decanted for three hours. This is a great bottle of old port. The 1955 Cockburn's retains subtle fruitiness along with toffee, smoke, and dark chocolate notes. All of the flavors were melded together and the port was slightly sweet without even a trace of alcohol. Great port!

“One of my all-time favourite Ports...A big wine that has evolved perfectly... mature but rosy-cheeked; glorious bouquet, a fabulous fragrance erupting out of its depths. Sweet, refined, silky yet still tannic, fleshy yet firm”.
