  1. Churchill's Ten Years Old Tawny Port 50cl

    Churchill's 10 Year Old Tawny Port 500ml

    £18.00

    £18.00

    If you're someone for whom Port is weighed down by a connotation of stuffy old institutions, bizarre ceremonies and old school ties, don't let a snob from your past prevent you from trying this outstanding wine; this port will change your mind. If you've never tried a tawny, plunge into the depths of the rich, nutty, smoky flavours that abound here and contemplate the life of a convert. This example is versatile enough to be chilled before serving and doubles up as either an excellent aperitif or after-dinner treat.

  2. Niepoort Redoma Tinto 2014 Portuguese Red Wine

    Niepoort Redoma Tinto 2014

    £36.00

    £36.00

    Redoma is the perfect Douro ambassador and is often served with a towering pyramid of Ferrero Rocher. Well, that's not entirely accurate. But with a great balance of berry fruit and minerality, all bound up with spice, pepper and a hint of floral aromas, it's a great representative for the region. Try it with a game terrine and fruit chutney. Just don't spend too long trying to make a towering pyramid out of your terrine, it's not Ferrero Rocher. Crack on with the wine. Excellente!

  3. Portal da Águia DOC 2014

    Portal da Águia DOC 2014

    £9.00

    £9.00

    The Portal da Águia winery's name translates to "Eagle's Gate". Although these mighty birds of prey deserve the accolades for their work in the vineyards (they are good at crushing grapes with their talons, quickly spot problems amongst the vines and keep the vineyards free of pests), we should not forget that this is a team effort. So as you sip this gorgeous Portuguese red, spare a thought for the wise owls in accounting, the flamboyant parakeets in marketing and the pelicans in logistics. The poor birds do really struggle with those corks though.

    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.

    Traditions can be really odd can’t they? Take cheese-rolling in Gloucestershire, where people leg it down a hill after a nine pound round of Double Gloucester cheese, which can reach up to 70mph, in a bid to win said cheese. The tradition of treading the grapes for Port in traditional ‘lagares’ is a slightly less ridiculous tradition, with indubitably tastier results. This Port, from a simply cracking year, underwent foot-treading in a lagare and has flavours of ripe plums, stewed blackberries and a hint of sweet tobacco. It would probably go pretty well Double Gloucester, come to think of it.
  6. Quinta dos Roques 2014

    Quinta dos Roques 2014

    £14.00

    Wine or maths? Not a difficult question, is it? We don't mind some algebra, fractions or long division occasionally, but the ratio of fun to not-fun with maths doesn't work in its favour in a head-to-head with wine.

    Luis Lourenco agreed with us, and promptly packed in his job as a maths teacher to become a winemaker. We applaud his choice because he went on to create this sumptuously chunky red wine. Although Americans say "do the math", we say "do the Quinta dos Roques", it's way more fun, you might even say it rocks.
