Medium Sweet. Naturally cask aged Boal. Delightful on its own, but partners very well with semi-sweet dishes (such as poached figs, ginger cake), and can be very successful with a cheeseboard.
Sweet. 100% cask aged Malvasia (Malmsey), with great balancing acidity. If serving as a dessert wine, partners very well with dishes which contain caramel, dried fruits, toffee and other similar flavours.
In centuries gone by, casks with sherry were lashed to ships sailing for the Indies as ballast and were found to develop an extraordinary smoothness and complexity. Lustau has revived this style of sherry in the East India wine.
Scoring 92 points on the Parker scale, the highest score ever awarded to a Manzanilla! Light and fresh, very tangy and clean with a hint of saltiness.
From a solera containing just 38 barrels, Juan Garcia Jarana has produced an outstanding Oloroso. Rich and full of dried fruit, toasted nuts and sweet spice.
Rich, sweet and velvety in the mouth with intense flavours of dates and figs. Pedro Ximenez at its opulent best!
A classic rich Ruby, with assertive bright primary fruit dominated by red cherries and plums, with great freshness from ageing in large wooden vats in the cool cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia.
A young but authentic tawny, with freshness and primary fruit, but with developed pipe-aged character too. Trodden and fermented in granite lagares, this is then aged in port pipes to accelerate oxidative development.
Smooth and rounded Aperitif from South West France. Aromas and flavours of dried fruit, cognac, honey and spices make this a real treat!
Flavours of dried fruits, almonds and hazelnut are followed by subtle, complex and ethereal wood and spice qualities. Culminates in a sweet, fortified finish. Just delicious!
Smoother than alot of Vintage port, more developed and easier to drink. It is a powerful, defiant, full-bodied and harmonious wine.
An absolute stunner and everything a matured port should be. The depth of flavour and aroma and the mellow complexity of the wine is something to behold. No wonder Decanter scored it 98pts!
Rich and sweet yes, but like all great Tawny; the sugar is tempered by 20 years of ageing and an underlying savoury chewiness. Surprisingly, and enjoyably, easy to drink!
Ramos Pinto have got themselves here a Port which is both mellow and complex, with loads of bright sweet fruit and layers of woody complexity and structure. Delightful!
