Churchill's Port, 1987

Agua Alta Vintage Port

This has a great colour, still very dense and dark. On the nose there are notes of dried fruit, dried blueberries, juniper berries with a little smoke. This is very nice and certainly has a lot of style. The palate is rich, refined, firm and structured, with a firm backbone of alcohol beneath a creamy midpalate. Reserved yet flavoursome, with more of those juniper berry notes and a deliciously sweet but precisely presented texture, this wine is really coming round very nicely. Fine and balanced, a pleasure to drink.

LBV differs from vintage port in that it is usually produced every year, and not just in those years declared to be of outstanding quality. It is said that the style was born of a mistake, when a vintage port was kept in barrel for too long.
