Churchill's Reserve Port

Churchill's Reserve Port is a house blend of premium wines produced from the same top grade “A” vineyards from which Churchill’s Vintage Ports are sourced. The Reserve Port retains the structure and fresh fruit of a young vintage but has been softened by its age in wood and filtration prior to bottling. Like all other Churchill’s Ports, the component wines of this Reserve blend have been vinified in traditional granite lagares (treading tanks). The young ports spend their first Winter in the Douro and are then transported in the early spring to Churchill's ageing lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia (Porto). Here they mature in seasoned oak vats for a period of 3 years before bottling. During this time they are carefully blended, racked and refreshed each year to ensure that they reach the bottle in perfect condition. Before bottling they are cold treated and filtered to guarantee a level of colour and tartrate stability during their first two years in bottle. This Port has a bright, full ruby colour with violet tones. The nose is very distinctive with fresh blueberries and hints of eucalyptus; a very vibrant young Port with plenty of natural acidity but also balance and pedigree denoting its grade “A” vineyard origins. No need to decant or bottle age as this Reserve Port is filtered and ready for immediate drinking!
