Wine Making Like all other Churchill’s Ports, the component wines of this Reserve blend have been vinified in traditional granite lagares (treading tanks). The young ports spend their first Winter in the Douro and are then transported in the early spring to our ageing lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia (Porto). Here they mature in seasoned oak vats for a period of 3 years before bottling.
Tasting notes This wine has a bright, full ruby colour with violet tones. On the nose, very distinctive with fresh blueberries and hints of eucalyptus and gum cistus; a very vibrant young Port with plenty of natural acidity but also balance and pedigree denoting its grade “A” vineyard origins.
Food pairing A delicious Port served on its own but also excellent with fruit or chocolate desserts and soft cheeses.
Serving Recommendations No need to decant. Serve straight from the bottle at a high cellar temperature (14-16ºC). Once opened it will keep well for up to one month.
