Vintage Port Tasting
Join us for this superb (and festively-timed) vintage Port evening. We'll revel in several delicious ports spanning multiple decades from the highest reputed port shippers such as Taylors, Dows, Warres and Fonseca.
Vintage Port accounts for less than 1% of the total Port production – which includes Tawny, Ruby, Late-Bottled Vintage and Single Quinta Vintage styles, among others – but is the finest, longest-lived and most expensive style around; the best are as good as any wine in existence. Made from a blend of wines from a producer's finest plots, it is aged for around 18 months in wooden casks, followed by at least 15 years ageing in bottle. Vintage Port is only made in exceptional years (normally around three to four times per decade) with considerable stylistic variation between different years and shippers. However, they all share a sweet, warming, spicy richness, power and complexity.
We will have some exceptional artisan cheeses available on the evening to enjoy as well.
