A deep garnet colour with a violet hue. Intense red cherry aromas with hints of sweet basil and white pepper. An elegant combination of red fruits and well integrated oak notes, with lively acidity providing a fresh palate and excellent backbone to this wine.
Wine maker notes
About 30% of this wine is aged for 12 months in both new and old French oak casks; the remaining part is kept in stainless steel vats to maintain its fruity character combined with the oak complexity from the wines in casks. It is fined and lightly filtered before bottling.

Producer
Founded in 1981 by John Graham and his wife Caroline Churchill, Churchillís port is an independent, family-owned Port Wine House -- the first independent port wine house established in more than fifty years. Churchillís is the only port wine producer who begins with wines produced only from grapes grown in Grade A vineyards. And according to Robert Parker, Jr., writing in The Wine Advocate, "Churchill's has established an impeccable reputation for superb quality.Ē
