Messias Port

messias-portCaves Messias is an historic Port Wine producer, world famous for both their Vintage and Colheita Ports. The company was founded in 1926 by Messias Baptista and has remained in his descendants’ hands to this day, his heirs now sitting together on the board of directors. The company keeps an extensive back catalogue of rare and sought-after vintages.

Messias’ most famous estate, Quinta do Cachão, sits in the subregion Cima Corgo – the most inhospitable area within the Douro. This estate takes its name from the Cachão de Valeira: a large rock which prevented navigation down the river, and the reason the subregion was not used to cultivate grapes until the early 19th century. The Cachão was destroyed in 1807, allowing estates to spring up along the valley – including the eponymous Quinta. Vines on the estate were first planted in 1845 by Barão do Seixo, before being sold to Afonso Cabral years on. Cabral’s family kept the property throughout the Phylloxera blight that nearly destroyed European wine, before finally selling it to the Messias family in 1956; the family proceeded to buy the neighbouring estate of Quinta do Rei two years later, then began complete renovations of the two estates.

Reviews
"The 1963 Colheita Port is an old vines field blend bottled in 2014 with a long cork. Fresh, rich and bright on the finish, this has a whiff of brandy, but it is surprisingly clean and youthful for its age. It lingers nicely, finally showing all of those old Tawny flavours. It's sweet caramel nuances are especially delectable on the juicy finish, but they weren't so defined and nuanced early on. I wasn't as thrilled on the first tastes, but by the fourth day, its beautiful acidity took over and made it multidimensional.

Messias Port, 1952

Colheita- Single Harvest Tawny Port

The Messias colheita port from the outstanding 1952 vintage has been aged in a barrel until bottling this year.
The extended barrel aging has given this wine a complex fusion of dried fruit and cedar notes. On the palate the wine is smooth and full bodies with plenty nuts and sweet fruit on the palate, fine balance. A tremendous finish which goes on forever. There's no question about the quality on display here.

White Sweet Port
Special Offer | Was £14.95 | Now £13.95

White port, made from a blend of local white Portuguese grapes is a little less intense than a tawny or a ruby and is one of the great summer sun-downers, simpler than fino sherry but just as refreshing!

This sweet white port from Messias has a lovely golden colour in the glass and a slight citrus aroma with a hint of wood. Fine and well balanced it is a superb after dinner drink, aperitif or, like they do in Portugal, mix in equal parts to tonic and garnish with a slice of lemon - a refreshing change to G&T.

Messias Port, 2009

10 Year Old White Port

A fairly rare style of port, the 10 years old white is characterised by skin contact and oxidative maturation. It is made in the same way as aged tawnies, with slow aging in pipes in the Messias lodges. The white grapes undergo a long period of skin maceration and are foot trodden. Following the addition of grape brandy, the White Port spends a year in large oak vats, followed by ageing in traditional oak pipes for a period of between 7 and 15 years.
