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

    Churchill's 10 Year Old Tawny Port 500ml

    £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.

    The myth of Sisyphus is well known. A man punished by the gods for his deceit, doomed to spend his days pushing a boulder up a steep hill, only to watch it roll back down each time he got it to the top. What's less well known, the Greeks being fairly free with other people's stories, is that the original Sisyphus was Portuguese.

    It is said that the huge limestone rock in the centre of the Mansz vineyards is the very boulder, serving as constant reminder to those making this delicate, complex red that perseverance is key. Each morning, workers embrace the stone with such gratitude and vigour they encrust themselves with limestone dust; and so, from their thankful hands, a compelling minerality is transferred to the wine.

    Hand-picked from a blind tasting line-up by the winner of The Palate 2013, Chloe Dickson (pictured), this wine has ringing endorsements from every corner:

    Chloe herself says “It’s perfect for the wintry festive period, when you need something rich, hearty, jammy and souly. When I drank it I could just imagine sitting next to a crackling fire, slippers on, snow falling outside and a roast in the oven. This wine has it all, it works brilliantly. It just works” What more can we say - we concur!

    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.

    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.
