Our 2011 Vintage Port is crafted from estate grown Chambourcin grapes that were hand harvested in October 2011. We make our port in the old world style by crushing the grapes in open top fermenters and inoculate with classic French yeast so fermentation can proceed until the correct balance of alcohol and sugar is obtained. Pot-stilled brandy is added to halt the fermentation process, leaving just the right amount of natural sweetness.
Aging for 30 months, in small French oak barrels, has melded the rich, lush cherry character of the ripe fruit with the warming touch of the pot-stilled brandy. It is a delicious, unique wine that will develop and age for many years. This Port bursts with a warm, jammy texture and finishes with a hint of sweetness. Enjoy after dinner with a selection of fine chocolates or robust cheeses.
