Messias Port, 1963
Colheita Single Harvest Tawny Port
*** 94 Points - Robert Parker ***
***96 Points-The Wine Enthusiast***
"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.

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 comes from the family owned Portuguese company founded in 1926.
