Vast selection of wines from the ridiculously cheap to very expensive and everything tasted so far has been excellent. Same applies to Ports and Madeiras. Shipping to the UK is very reasonable and takes less than 2 weeks for delivery even to the far North of Scotland.

Superb colour, full body and very fine aroma and flavour. As the wine ages it softens and slowly sheds its deep dark colour, gaining in structure and complexity.

Winemaking:
Harvest begins towards the middle of September each year as pickers work the terraces to harvest the fully ripened grapes. The wine matures in casks or in larger wooden vats. The cool ambient temperature of the cellars and its location near the coast is ideal for the lengthy maturation of Port.

Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão

Superb colour, full body and very fine aroma and flavour. As the wine ages it softens and slowly sheds its deep dark colour, gaining in structure and complexity.

Food Pairing:
Vintage Ports are after meal drinks. Take them with cheese like Stilton or Gorgonzola. But you can also incorporate them into a meal, combining for instance a Steak au Poivre with a young Vintage.
