It’s really incredible, but this Port actually has its own song.
‘What’s that then?’, we hear you cry. Well, *clears throat and bows exaggeratedly*… “Mr Sandeman has brought me a dream. He’s made the cutest Port that I’ve seen. If you put it to your lips, it tastes like roses and clover. And when you try it your stilton’s lonesome nights are over.”
As we say, incredible, although we’ll admit that this Port doesn’t really taste that much of clover, but more like cassis and cedar. We wonder what clover tastes like…Touriga Franca (30%), Tinta Roriz (30%), Tinta Barroca (20%), Touriga Naçional (10%), Tinto CãoOak:7Light Full bodied7Dry Sweet
Drinking port can be like opening up those tradional, wooden russian dolls. As you open each doll you reveal another one, another style of port. The first one is like trying basic ruby port-ok not bad, then the next you discover LBV port- which is much better.
After some generous soul gives you a glass of single vintage port-it's brilliant and you think you have hit the last doll. But then you discover there is one more. The last one.
A fine tawny port. Silky butterscotch, dried fruits and nutty flavours- completely new flavours compared to the previous ones. You really can't get any further than that.Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa, Tinta BarrocaSuitable For Vegetarians
We’re trying to think of ways to describe this well-aged Pedro Ximenex that don’t have us cooing and gushing like some over-excitable newlyweds. Darn it, we just can’t help it: we are in love with this wine and we want the world to know!
Here are some words we think of, as we gaze into the rich, dark depths in our glass: cocoa, liquorice, tobacco pouch, rosemary, black olives, Arabic coffee, vanilla and cinnamon. But how feeble words sound compared to the immeasurable depth of feeling in our hearts. We need to sit down.Pedro Ximinez (100%)Oak:9Light Full bodied10Dry Sweet
Quinta de Vargellas has gone through some changes over the years, the vineyards date back to 1820 when the wines were sold to the English market. After the vineyards were devastated by the phylloxera disease in the 1880s, a couple of blokes armed with faith and dedication decided to attempt to rebuild these vineyards.
Now, the Vargellas vineyards produce sophisticated Ports from vines up to 75 years old, with a focus on sustainability. The 2002 vintage is particularly intense, with rich raisin-y fruit and lots of sweet spices. We say thank you, Taylor Fladgate and Yeatman, for having faith and slogging it out.Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta BarrocaOak:9Light Full bodied7Dry Sweet
