This white Port is a revelation; fresh, quite dry and moreish. Flavours of tangy lime, salt, cream, almond and grapefruit make this a great aperitif. You can even mix this with tonic, ice, lemon and mint for a super-quaffable alternative to a gin & tonic.
A fine and rare type of port much loved by CWM. The wine forms a crust adding both depth of flavour and character to the wine, and therefore will require decanting before serving. Definitely worth the wait.

Warre’s was alone for many years in continuing to make LBV in the same way as it had been made for generations; bottled without any fining or filtration after some 4 years of ageing in cask. This Port is then matured in bottle for at least another 4 years.This prolonged bottle ageing is crucial to the development of the superb “nose” and flavour which lend this Port a style and complexity very much akin to that of Vintage Port. Warre’s LBV is generally acknowledged to be the finest of its type. Food pairing suggestion: This wine is superb with cheese, nuts and dried fruits after a meal.
In the early 1950’s, the rising demand for Vintage ports led Fonseca to create a second vintage port under the ‘Guimaraens’ label. Blended from slightly less powerful components, Guimaraens Vintage Ports are made in years when the wines are more supple and early maturing though they are drawn from the same three estates. They differ only in that they are more approachable, ready to drink earlier and for their quality and rarity offer exceptional value. “Caramelised black cherry, liquorice, tea leaves. Pruny.

Grahams Crusted Port is a style of bottle-aged Port made that can be made from a blend of 2 or 3 young vintage Ports and, because it is bottled without fining or filtration, will develop a sediment (or crust) with age, like a vintage Port, and will require a simple decanting. It made from a selection of very fine young Ports from two or three harvests sourced from Graham’s own Quintas.
