Churchill’s Crusted Port

This Port Wine has a rich garnet colour with a violet hue. Fresh resinous notes on the aroma. Complex and elegant on the palate, combining cherry flavours with dark chocolate notes in a well-balanced finish.

Crusted Port is carefully blended from Vintage Ports of two different years which have been aged for 2 to 3 years in wood. The Crusted Port Wine blend then spends its final 6 months in seasoned oak casks before being bottled unfiltered into dark Vintage Port bottles.

A field blend of many varieties including Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca and Tinta Barroca.

This Churchill’s Crusted Port is now ready for drinking but will continue to improve for at least another ten years gaining in complexity like a Vintage Port. The bottle is sealed with a driven cork allowing it to be stored lying down. Care needs to be taken not to disturb the “crust”. If it is taken from a horizontal position, it may be best to leave the bottle standing for a period of two hours before decanting.
