Churchills 2017 Vintage Port presented in 37.5cl bottles.
Churchill’s Port was founded relatively recently in 1981 by Johnny Graham. It was the first new Port Wine company to be founded in 50 years. Johnny Graham’s family has a long and illustrious history in the Port trade. Graham’s Port was established in 1820 and sold to the Symington Family in 1970) in the Port trade and Johnny had become a director of Cockburn’s Port before he left to set up his own company and make his own style. The Ports are only made with natural fermentation and with as little fortification brandy as possible as Graham strives for Port wines that are as natural as possible with a perfect balance. The company is named after his wife, Caroline Churchill. The company acquired Quinta da Gricha, where the winery is located, in 1999 which also allowed them to enter into the production of Douro table wines.
Tasting Notes from Churchill’s:
Churchill’s 2017 Vintage Port has a very deep violet colour, with a resinous intensity on the nose and layers of fresh blueberry aromas upfront. Exuberant and vinous on the palate, with flavours of crushed blackberries in combination with a gravelly tannic structure, this wine has a vibrant natural acidity contributing to a long-lasting finish.
