  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. Churchills 20yo Tawny Port

    Churchills 20 Year Old Tawny Port 500ml

    £27.00

    £27.00

    Port may traditionally be a festive treat but, trust us, if someone puts a pecan pie and a glass of Churchill's 20 year old Tawny Port under your nose, you should not hesitate. We're talking Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, whether you're mowing the lawn or doing Pilates on a hill top, you need to down tools, park your bum down and savour its toasty, warmly sweet yet pleasingly dry goodness right there. With the pie. Do not forget the pie.
  3. Duas Quintas Portuguese Red

    Duas Quintas 2014

    £13.50

    £13.50

    We have a recipe for you. Take one world famous Port house (Ramos Pinto) and one incredibly prestigious Champagne producer (Louis Roederer). Add two very different vineyards in the Douro Valley, one hot, one cool. Stir in an even mix of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) and simmer gently in the Portuguese sunshine. Transfer part to French oak barrels and leave to relax for at least 12 months. The result is Duas Quintas. A red wine served heaped with praise and seasoned with medals and scores of 90/100.
  4. Fonseca Bin 27 Finest Reserve Port

    Fonseca Bin 27 Finest Reserve NV

    £14.00

    £14.00

    This 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'
  5. Fonseca Crusted Port NV

    Fonseca Crusted Port NV

    £18.00

    £18.00

    Fictional 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. Post Scriptum Douro 2013

    Post Scriptum Douro 2015

    £22.00

    £22.00

    This beautiful red from Portugal's Douro Valley name is Post Scriptum. Meaning 'After' in latin. More commonly recognised in our modern (English speaking) written world as P.S. Postscript. It's more applicable to the days when most messages were hand written. Nowadays it an extra chance for a continued rant. Perhaps PS is the well-spoken cousin of the casual BTW? Anyway, this red is an assembly of high-quality grape varieties native to the Douro. This full-bodied red possesses a deep ruby colour and fine elegant tannins. Flavours sketched in dried fruits, plums, cherry and spices. PS Put away the laptop, this wine is a letter written in a deep red calligraphic script penned on handmade paper. BTW Some red wax, a medieval seal, and some cheese would finish off this missive nicely.
  9. Quinta Do Noval 10 YO Tawny Port NV

    Quinta Do Noval 10 YO Tawny Port NV

    £24.00

    £24.00

    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.
  10. Quinta dos Roques Red Wine Portugal

    Quinta dos Roques 2014

    £14.00

    £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.
  11. Sandeman Vau Vintage 1999

    Sandeman Vau Vintage 1999

    £26.50

    £26.50

    One in a long list of alternative Port styles that offer those who can't wait, or can't afford, the chance to sample a piece of something special.

    This is considered Sandeman's second label in a declared vintage year, and unlike their straight-up vintage, this in-between Port style can be enjoyed now or after ageing. Rich, juicy, intense and sweet, if you're looking for a memorable Port for a memorable evening, we can certainly Vau-ch for this!
