Try this stunning Douro red and 2 delicious Ports with a 10-20% discount!
The quality of Ports and red table wines coming out of the dramatically beautiful Douro Valley has never been higher.
This Christmas we strongly recommend the following 2 Ports from the fantastic 2011 vintage and a great value Douro red wine made from a blend of local grapes from the Douro region by Sandra Tavares, one of Portugal’s top winemakers.
Foz Torto Douro Red 2015 reduced from CHF19.90 to CHF15.90/bt Foz Torto’s 3 hectares of vineyards grow on extremely steep terraces in one of the most beautiful, south west facing spots in the Douro Valley, right in the heart of the Cima Corgo, the region’s highest quality subzone. This wine is rich, ripe, characterful and complex – and superb value! Only around 600 cases were produced.
Dows Late Bottled Vintage 2011 reduced from CHF29.50 to CHF26.50/bt If you like the idea of a vintage Port but prefer not to wait 20 years before drinking it, then Late Bottled Vintage is the answer. Dows LBV is my favourite Port in this style from the cracking 2011 vintage. Bottled after 4 years in large old oak casks it has 90% of the quality and character of vintage Port but at a fraction of the price.
Taylor’s vintage Port 2011 (in half bottle) reduced from CHF60 to CHF54/bt This is Port at its very best! Nobody makes vintage Port better than Taylors and 2011 is one of the very best vintages of the past 60 years. Although this Port will improve in bottle over a further 15 years or so it is already drinking beautifully now with bags of violet and black fruit flavours, silky smooth tannins and restrained power. Sold in half bottles because once you open a bottle of vintage Port, you really need to drink it within 10 days.
