Port Wine Cockburn’s Quinta dos Canais Vintage 2010 75cl
Region: Douro, Portugal
Opaque deep purple in colour.
A floral nose with the sweetness of intense ripe berry fruit and a touch of fig and mint/eucalyptus.
In the mouth it’s full-bodied but supple with flavours of dark fruits and a hint of pepper.
From the farm:
“Pick of the crop. Top of the heap.
It doesn’t get any better than our Vintage Port. If all the conditions are perfect and the port gods are smiling down on us, we declare a vintage year.
Because of the unique microclimate of our vineyards, we sometimes declare vintage years when our neighbours don’t.
It’s been known to raise the odd eyebrow but it’s just how we do things.
Exquisitely rare and painstakingly created, our Vintage Port is a gift from our home to yours. And gifts are meant to be opened. Eventually.”
