Offley Vintage Port

Founded in London in 1737 by William Offley as a wine trading company, Offley soon began to produce its own port and earn recognition as a high-quality, creative wine House. A decisive moment in the company’s development was the arrival of Joseph James Forrester, nephew to William Offley, and his appointment as partner. Forrester, who would later be given the title of Baron by the King in recognition of his achievements, devoted his life and career to furthering the Port industry and his company; he was the first to chart the Douro River and Valley, contributed to key international trade links for Port wine and undertook numerous studies into wine-growing, benefiting the industry with his research into native grapes, soil types and pests.

Unfortunately, the Baron passed in a boating accident on the river he loved so much; the ships in Oporto and Lisbon hoisted their colours to half-mast in respect when the news reached them, and his legacy continues to this day through Offley and the Port wine trade as a whole. He is still affectionately remembered in the wine country as ‘protector of the Douro’. Today, Offley takes immense pride in its heritage and aims to ‘adjust yesterday’s experience to tomorrow’s challenges’.

Offley Vintage Port, 2011

Vintage Port Single 75cl Bottle

*** 90-92 Points Neil Martin ***

Reviews: " "The Offley Boa Vista Vintage Port comes from selected grapes in the Pinhao area and, of course, the Quinta de Boa Vista. The 2011 is a blend of 45% Touriga Nacional, 45% Touriga Franca and 10% Tinta Roriz, bottled in April. It has a high-toned bouquet with sweet blueberry and cassis aromas - very forward and perhaps not as complex as the Ferreira Vintage at the moment. The palate is actually better than the nose, in particular the fine tannins and the delicate dash of white pepper sprinkled over the finish. The Offley appears to have very impressive balance and after ten minutes in the glass, the nose begins to calm down and develops hints of clove and heather.
