Vinho do Porto Churchill´s Vintage 2011
Sourcing: Our Churchill’s 2011 Vintage Port has been blended from a variety of very old vineyards. The backbone of the blend has been sourced from our old vines at Quinta da Gricha. (A field blend of 50 year plus old vines). All our Ports are made in lagares or traditional granite treading tanks. This is our preferred choice of vinification for Port. Although more costly, we believe it is still the most effective maceration process for making top quality Vintage Port.
Grapes Varieties: A field blend of very old vineyards including grape varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Francisca and Tinto Cão.
Cellaring Recommendation: This is a classic Vintage Port which will age well for over half a century.
Ageing: During the first six months, the young Port spent the winter months at Quinta da Gricha in our “tonéis” (seasoned oak vats), being then brought down to our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia.
Recommended Serving Temperature: Serve at cellar temperature.
