Product Information

Churchill Crusted Port is a Port of Vintage quality which is often blended from Vintage Port of two different years. It is aged in oak casks before being bottled and then matured in bottle for at least 3 years before being sold. The year on the label is the year of bottling. Sourced from old vineyards at Churchill’s estates, Quinta da Gricha and Quinta do Rio in the Cima Corgo sub-region of the Douro Wine Region, this is a field blend of many varieties including Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Francisca and Tinta Barroca.

Tasting Notes

This Port Wine has a full, dark ruby colour, a concentrated berry aroma and on the palate, a broad structure with rich complexity and beginning to show the benefits of bottle age.

How to Serve

Although it can now be considered ready for drinking, this Crusted Port will continue to improve for at least 10 years in bottle gaining in complexity like a young Vintage Port Wine. It should be stored at cellar temperature of 12-14 ºC.

Crusted Port is delicious on its own after lunch or dinner; also excellent with plum pudding or strong cheeses such as Stilton and Camembert. Save the natural sediment or crust for seasoning meats and adding to sauces.
