The house’s 2011 vintage Port has been blended from a variety of its old vineyards, with “the backbone” being sourced from a field blend of 50-year-old-and-over vines at Quinta da Gricha.
Owner Johnny Graham said that he was “particularly proud to present this stunning vintage”, adding that it is “what I call a classic vintage Port.”
The Churchill's Vintage Port has a comparatively light, aniseed-tinged bouquet with orange blossom that wafts seductively from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannins and very well-judged acidity that lends this young Churchill's great precision. This is a very harmonious Vintage Port with a lovely touch of salted licorice towards the finish. Beautiful.
