Churchill’s Vintage Port 1994
Churchill’s 1994 is a ripe and full bodied Vintage Port. Deep purple in colour, the nose has a powerful black cherry aroma and the palate is earthy and complex with a breadth of concentrated fruit flavours; a powerhouse of a Vintage.
This Vintage Port is only available in 37,5cl bottles.
Old vineyards from the sub-region of Cima Corgo in the Douro region, combining the more mature power of Água Alta with the elegant aromatically “green tea” styles of Manuela and Fojo.
A field blend of old vineyards (av. Age 40-50 years old) including many grape varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca e Tinto Cão.
After fermentation, the wine goes through an ageing period of two years in big capacity “tonéis” (seasoned oak) for a period of two years prior to bottling.
Being a ripe year it is approachable now but has the weight and power to go the full distance and should be at its peak from 2024-2034.
Serve at room temperature (18ºC). Decant before serving.
