Burmester Port

burmester-port

Burmester produces an outstanding range of Colheita Ports. These are ports from a single harvest that have been barrel-aged for many years until bottling. They have developed amazing flavours of caramel, nuts and spices. Served slightly chilled, they are a fabulous drink on its own or an amazing accompaniment to sweet desserts.

Founded in 1730 by John Burmester and Henry Nash as a cereal trading company, they moved to Oporto in 1750 to bring port into the UK. The company quickly developed a good reputation and by the late 1800's was considered to be in the first rank of producers. However, the company floundered after the First World war before being acquired by two Brothers from the Burmester Family who turned round its fortunes. Today the brand is owned by Sogevinous, the Owners of Kopke, Calem and Barros.

Burmester ports have developed a strong reputation throughout Europe and the US. However, the brand is practically unknown in the UK market which is dominated by just a few Shippers. We are proud to reintroduce this amazing brand back into the UK.

Burmester Port, 2015

Burmester Quinta de Arnozelo Single Quinta Vintage Port (Includes own gift box as illustrated)

Our notes: Beautifully ripe red and dark berry fruits and violets in the nose and the mouth. Pleasantly sweet and smooth. Good acidity and fine tannins at this early stage. Medium bodied and a lovely Port wine. Will mature over the next 10-15 years.


The vineyard of Quinta do Arnozelo is situated on the southern bank of the Douro river, between the small towns of São João da Pesqueira and Vila Nova de Foz Côa. This is in the prestigious upper reaches of the Douro demarcated wine region, the aptly named Douro Superior. In addition to its favourable geographic location, it has an ideal micro-climate, both of which contribute to the superior quality of its grapes and other produce.

Burmester Port, 2013

Late Bottled Vintage Port

Tasting Note:
The aromas are delicate and varied, with plenty of tropical fruit, berries and grapes fully ripe. In its evolution are noticeable aromas of cocoa, chocolate and a slight toasted wood. The palate is dense and opaque.

Winemaking:
In similar fashion to the Vintage, Late Bottled Vintage is produced in the traditional manner, thus gaining a more rustic and tougher character. It is aged in the Vila Nova de Gaia cellars in enormous oak vats in order to preserve its deep colour and fresh fruit flavours, gaining a closed and fruity character. It is bottled between the fourth and fifth spring after harvest.

Burmester Port, 2011

Vintage Port 75cl bottle in wooden case.
SPECIAL OFFER | WAS £79.95 | . Now £49

***93 Points- Wine Spectator***
***Gold Medal- Concours Mondial de Bruxelles***
***90 Points -Robert Parker***
The 2011 J W Burmester has a sweeter, comparatively floral bouquet with open, generous scents of ripe dates, black plum and raisin that need to show a little more restraint. The palate is similarly sweet and viscous on the mouth. It leans away from the 2011s more structured style, but it is nicely balanced and would appeal to those that like a little hedonism in their “VPs.” Tasted May 2013, Robert Parker.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, all Vintages are bottled in the cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia during the second spring after the harvest.

Colheita Port in branded wooden case

*** 93 Points - Robert Parker ***

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

Reviews:
"The 1989 Colheita Tawny Port was bottled in 2015 with 103.6 grams per liter of residual sugar. Fresh and balanced, with a feeling of liveliness, this is more about restraint and elegance than mid-palate weight, but it shows fine concentration of flavor on the finish and delivers more than adequate mid-palate concentration as well. It also has more power than anticipated on first taste. Tightening fast as it warms, its fresh feel if laced with just a touch of Whiskey that provides the perfect counterweight to the tension on the finish and fine flavors.

40 Year Old “TORDIZ” Tawny Port presented in a branded wooden case

*** Gold Medal at the 2015 International Wine Challenge ***

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

Bright brown colour, with greenish nuances. Presents a bouquet with intense aromas of dried fruits, delicate spices notes and a sweet touch of honey. In the taste it is full, unctuous and velvety. This wine overflows seduction and an enormous refinement. A feeling that is extended in the long and complex finish.

This 40-year-old wine owes its name, Tordiz, to the confluence of the Torto and Mendiz rivers. It is obtained from wines that have been carefully aged in small oak casks and later blended in a small upstanding oak vat dating from 1864.

Colheita Port

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."
