Welcome to our wonderful corner of Port - we have a range available that should hopefully suit most tastes with both budget and style in mind. Maybe you're after the rich decadent intensity of vintage port or the more subtle yet just as powerful LBV. Maybe you want something that is not quite as expensive and is not quite so intense? Try a Ruby. Love nutty, rich flavours and want your port just a little chilled? Go Tawny, the older it is the more intense the flavours will be. How about something off dry, no tannin, with a lemon hue and perfect chilled for an aperitif? Then White is your bag. Port is a traditional world where the variation possible is enough to keep any with a minor sweet tooth happy for a long time and you can sip away knowing that huge portions of love and care have gone into the making of your wine.

£15.00Port, traditionally, is saved for a luxurious, après dinner treat and is usually ruby in colour and lavishly, decadently rich and sweet. Not so here. No – this is that marvellous, rare thing – a white Port – and it much prefers to work its magic before dinner. Shove this in your guests' hands when they come in from the cold and you’ll be their BFF (Best Friend Forever didn’tcha know). Off-dry, nutty and toasty, and balanced with beautiful blossom and dried fig flavours, this is a mellow, subtle and complex.Gouveio, MalvasiaOak:6Light Full bodied5Dry Sweet
£12.60This shopping malarky is getting ridiculous. I could be standing here for hours. But a decision needs to be made now. The shop's tasting notes say that Fonseca Bin 27 Finest Port is 'The best blended port you're gonna find today or ever.' Well, that's easy for them to say..... Suddenly a lovely old lady sticks a bony elbow in my innards, shoves past and grabs a bottle. Then a spotty student also ducks in whilst exclaiming to his mate. 'That's totes dads fav'. I turn to start ranting about that bloody none existent word 'totes'. Before I open my mouth a bank robber politely steps past to buy a bottle with his new earnings. Turning around I find that my friend has already asked the staff and bought the same one. Bin 27 Finest Port. 'Come on J-dog. The staff here said they tasted it last night. Apparently, it's totes amazeballs dude'Touriga Naçional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão
£16.20Fictional WW1 fighter pilot ace Biggles would have definitely favoured port. Especially this crusted port. It's a traditional, rare style of port blended from full bodied wines & aged in oak casks for four years. Its powerful dark berry and dried fruit flavours would have kept his tummy warm as he bravely traversed enemy territory in his sopwith camel aeroplane. The subtle eucalyptus finish would also comfort him as he hopped into bed, in his flannel pyjamas, after a good day thrashing Erich von Stalhein's forces. One things for sure, if Biggle was in a pickle. He'd have a bottle of this crusted port stowed away in his flying togs.Touriga Naçional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz, Tinto CãoSuitable For VegetariansSuitable For Vegans
£21.50We’re going to put our neck on the line here and say that we have a favourite talk show host. That host is Graham Norton. Sorry Jonathan and Alan, but Graham’s the man for Oddbins. Why? Because he is very natural and easy with his guests, accompanying them on whatever flights of fancy they go on. Warm-natured and dry yet charmingly nutty, (now you’ll see where we’re going with this…), he is much like his 10 Year Old Portuguese Tawny Port namesake.Touriga Naçional, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Barroca, Touriga FrancaOak:6Light Full bodied7Dry Sweet
£14.75Graham´s Late Bottled Vintage Port (LBV) is an excellent wine, hand selected from only the finest produce each year. This LBV is matured in seasoned oak and then bottled at between four and six years of age giving its 'Late Bottling' name. It is a deep opaque colour, with heavy tones of dark red round the rim. On the nose it is full of elegance with aromas of red fruits and eucalyptus combined with minty notes. Rich red fruits line the palate with additional peppery tannins.
£32.00Smoother than George Clooney in a tuxedo, this is a very special Port at its optimum maturity.Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto CãoOak:9Light Full bodied7Dry Sweet
£98.00Graham's 1983 Vintage Port is rich and full-bodied and is a real star performer for the vintage. Rich floral and violet aromas, masses of strawberry flavours, very good balance. Long. Subtle finish. Excellent! Showing excellent characteristics of a bottle matured wine, and will only improve with a few more years in your cellar, if you can keep your hands off!Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca
£24.00Drinking 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
£40.00This Port, unlike yours truly, was charming in its youth. Full of swaggering, fresh young fruit, it was a joy to drink, which isn’t always the case for Vintage Ports. However, the passage of time has mellowed it out (something we can relate to) even more and now it is a Port of complexity and, dare we say, majesty. With flavours of spiced, raisiny fruit, damson and black treacle, it’s fair to say it has aged well and has picked up a few tricks over the years. Noval Silval 1998 has never been more ready.Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto CãoOak:7Light Full bodied7Dry Sweet
£13.25It’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
£33.00Quinta 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
£79.00Port Toes' has to be the CUTEST name for a piece of wine making equipment ever! The name refers to an invention that simulates the traditional method of crushing grapes by workers treading on them. Does it summon an image of springy little robot toes tapping away on the grapes like a piano player? The video in Youtube is less evocative, but the important thing is the result is spectacular. The nose bears this port house's hallmark perfumed floral and rockrose scent. On the palate are jammy fruits, more floral elegance, excellent length and concentration. If you don't like talking about feet maybe 'Port Toes' is not cute. Which means this description is self de-feeting.Suitable For VegetariansSuitable For Vegans
