Churchills Vintage Port 1997
19 pts Vinho Grandes Escolhas - Good concentration of fresher “greener” fruit. It has what we call in the trade a “steel girder”; i.e. a good tannin structure which binds and balances the fruit and ensures good ageing potential. Deep brick red colour. Seductive on the nose, with notes of fresh mint and menthol. On the palate, a combination of black nougat and green capers, with elegant grip and acidity.

Winemaking:
Churchill's 1997 was the ugly duckling that suddenly matured into a beautiful swan. Being a less mature year, 1997 closed quickly and for the next 10 years was very embarrassing. But from one year to the next it opened up and transformed itself! A fresh, well balanced and elegant Vintage, with an impressive aroma of herbs and pine essence.
