Our latest edition to the Port list is the fabulous Burmester from the 1997 Vintage
The Messias 1983 Vintage Port is a mellow but full flavoured Port with fine balance and plenty of ripe fruits. Excellent with smoked cheese.
The Quinta do Vesuvio 1997 has a dark and intense purple colour on the nose showing a luscious ripeness with rich floral aromas of gum citrus and hints of blackcurrant. On the palate the wine is extraordinarily rich and full-bodied, packed with layers of fruit and firm tannins, holding its richness all the way through to a long and concentrated finish.
A medium-boded Croft port, the 1982 vintage port has a light and fruity aroma, backed up by delicious dark fruits on the palate with a sweetness that hints at burnt sugar at times. A well composed port that will perhaps not age as well as other vintage ports from this era, but is beautifully poised for drinking now.
