We have a great variety of wonderful Ports available, covering a wide range of price points, vintages and styles – from the intense berry fruit flavours of a Reserve or Late Bottled Vintage, to the rich mellowness of an Aged Tawny – to the sublime complexity of a legendary Vintage Port.
Vintage Port is the finest of all port styles and is made entirely from the grapes of a single year, but makes up only around 2% of a year’s total Port production. Port vintages are declared when a port house (estate) feels that their wine in a particular vintage is of the highest quality. There is not always uniform agreement between houses as to whether a year should be declared a vintage, and on average there are around three declarations each decade. Vintage ports are aged in barrels for up to 2.5 years and generally require 10-30+ years to reach the start of their drinking.
