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!

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this.
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!
If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
