More about this wine
It’s perhaps a surprisingly little-known fact that for a fortified wine to be known as a Port it has to be produced in Porto, Portugal.
Bar trivia facts aside, port is a delicious dessert wine favoured the world over by people sat in grandfather chairs with a roaring log fire thrown in for good measure… but that’s not all there is to this very special wine. Port is equally at home as the perfect party-starter thanks to its high sugar and alcohol content.
Whether it’s January or July, Port wine should have a place on your table. For summer evenings, dig out that picnic blanket and meet your other half in the park with a chilled bottle, salted almonds, jamon and blue cheese. Come winter, run a hot bath, light a candle and sink into this Late Bottled Vintage.
Alternatively, get home on any day of the week that ends in Y, kick off your shoes and hunker down for the evening with a luxurious glass and a large bar of dark chocolate.
