Niepoort LBV Port Half Bottle

£12.95
Add to basket

Niepoort have been making wines and ports in the Duoro Valley since 1842, the business being passed through five generations.  Ancient vines, hand picked and 100% foot trodden and fermented in the circular granite lagares at Vale de Mendiz.  This wine ages 4-6 years in large old oak vats (opposed to Vintage, that ages 2-3 years). LBV fills the gap between the rubies and the vintage ports since a Ruby Port should be drunk quite young and a great Vintage Port may need 15 to 20 years to really open up and show its splendour.

Lots of fruit characters, mainly forest fruits with dark chocolate aromas and a slight spicy note, someacidity provides a great freshness.  Drinking beautifully now but this will also benefit from cellaring for a couple of decades.  This pairs well with chocolate desserts, cheddar and brie cheese as well as rich red meats or game.  A smaller bottle that’s perfect for just a little tipple!

Barbeito Boal 5 Year Old Reserva Madeira

£14.95
Add to basket

Barbeito are one of the smallest Madeira Wine producers, only founded in 1946 but has an extraordinary reputation.  Ricardo, the founder’s grandson took over in the ‘90’s, reinventing the traditional wines and techniques.  He was the first to bottle Madeira wine without adding caramel and has also bottled from a single cask, which was once a traditional way.

A medium sweet wine with aromas of dried fruit, honey and floral notes.  It has a slight smokiness on the palate yet finishes fresh and tangy.  Delightful on its own, but partners very well with semi-sweet dishes (such as poached figs, ginger cake), and can be very successful with a cheeseboard.
