Vintage Port 'Quinta da Gricha', Churchill's

Churchill’s purchased the estate of Quinta da Gricha in 1999, and it quickly formed the spiritual heart of the house, and is where all the wines are made today before being sent downriver for aging in Vila Nova de Gaia. Following general Port trends, Churchill’s has been marketing vintage bottlings from this single estate in parallel to the ‘flagship’ vintage wine.)

This Port from the estate that forms the basis of the producer's declared Vintage Ports is herbal and spicy, with a blend of firm tannins and generous black fruits. It is sure to age well and give a generous Port. Wait to drink from 2028.

Review:
Cask sample. Exceptionally deep blackish purple. Colour right out to the rim. Quite introvert but intriguing nose with notes of liquorice and treacle/molasses. Quite a dry finish after rigorous structure. Just a hit of green apples on the end. But it's definitely a successful 2018. Marked grip.
