Special Offer | Was £69 | Now £49.95

from the very good 2002 Port Vintage the Burmester has a beautiful mature tawny colour. On the nose it has cocoa, chocolate together with a hint of mint. On the palate this is quite complex - medium bodied with a perfect balance between the acidity, tannins and flavours, there is a little spiciness in the mouth that adds to the experience.

Churchill's Port

20 Year Old tawny port 50cl bottle

Churchill's 20 Years Old Tawny Port is an expression of Douro terroir, combined with delicate ageing in seasoned oak casks. The result of this combination is a port full of finesse that retains Churchill's characteristic fresh identity.

Compared to other Port Wine shippers, most of which were established around the turn of the18th/19th centuries, Churchill’s history is short. Johnny Graham founded Churchill’s, (named after his wife’s maiden name) in 1981, making it the first British port company to be established in fifty years. The grapes are hand-picked and processed into ancient granite lagares, where they are trodden by foot while fermentation naturally occurs.

Kopke Port

Kopke 20 Year Old Tawny Port
In Gift Box
Decanter 2021 Silver Award Winner

*** Decanter Wine Awards- Silver - 92 Points***

Aged in wood casks until they are completely mature, Tawny ports are a golden colour with multi-dimensional layers of aromas and flavours. The domination of Vintage Ports in past years is now challenged by the advantages of the tawnies, especially vintage colheita tawnies for restaurants and retail consumers. Where vintage ports have immediate air shock upon opening the bottle wherein they were aged and have a shelf life of only a few hours to a week; tawny ports have had air working on them through the cask during all the years of ageing, giving them a open-life of a month or longer.

Review:
This rare 20 year old white port has a cool, light-amber colour, this unique white “tawny” port derives from the traditional white grapes of the Porto e Douro region, including Arinto, Viosinho, Gouveio and Malvasia Fina. Starting with aromas of a Pear Clafouti and burnt sugar, this elegant port delivers luscious flavours of Japanese pear-apple, with accents of hazelnut, nutmeg and orange zest.

Dow's Port, 2002

Crusted Port (Bottled in 2002)

Vibrant and full of ripe red-berry fruit flavours balanced by rich black chocolate over tones, Dow's Crusted Port is superb value for money and gives many of the unique flavours of the great bottle matured Vintage Ports at a fraction of the price.

Crusted port is a blend of carefully selected young ports from two or three vintage years, bottled without any fining or filtration in the year indicated on the label. After many years of bottle ageing in ideal conditions in Graham's cellars in Oporto, it has developed the magnificent bouquet and flavour unique to bottle matured wines.

Crusted Port derives its name from the fact that, exactly like Vintage Port, it will throw a 'crust' or natural deposit as it matures in bottle.
