Colheita Port, Single Harvest port
Special Offer | Was £695 | Now £595
An outstanding 1944 Single Harvest Colheita port.
This 1944 Port from Kopke, the worlds oldest port house is a true rarity. There are no remaining stocks at Kopke and so these are some of the last bottles for sale.
This port has a bright amber colour with a brown-tawny halo. Elegant nose of dried fruits, well integrated with wood notes. Light and fragrant, with wonderful volume and structure. A wine with great freshness and multi-dimensional flavours. Delicate and persistent finish.
Colheita, or single harvest ports, are aged in the barrel. This is a contrast to vintage ports which are aged in the bottle and only have a short drinking window after opening.
Price: £595.00 (9 in Stock)
Vintage Port Good label. (Top shoulder)
A very pale ochre core, with a nose of nuts and marzipan. This was hot, with toasted nuts, a whiff of mandarins and not too much else. Fragile.
Tasted on the 23rd April 2014 at the Sandeman V20 tasting.

Aszu Essencia (Half litre, 50cl)
Special Offer | Was £395 | Now £249
This 1944 Tokaji Aszu Essencia is a sweet wine of stunning concentration and complexity. A rich complex wine with incredibly deep concentration, bitter oranges, ginger, manuka honey aromas and flavours, but though super sweet it is perfectly balanced with succulent citrus acidity. Harmony, balance and depth are absolutely world class.
After the Essencia, the Aszú Essencia (often confounded with the Essencia) is the second highest quality level among Tokaj wines. Its preparation is the same as that for the Aszú, and it is produced only in excellent years. The quality level is not indicated anymore by the number of puttonyos.

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe
Established around 1680, the Chateau Latour estate is one of the oldest of the Medoc. At the heart of the estate, the principal parcel named "L'Enclos" is 47 hectares of the oldest vines that are preciously maintained because only they are able to give birth to the "Grand Vin". The wine of Chateau Latour is an example of consistent excellence, no matter the vintage. Firm, tannic and concentrated in its youth, it needs a long cellaring to reveal all of its profoundness, strength and extraordinary richness. At perfect maturity, the wine distinguishes itself by an incredible bouquet of black currant, hazelnut and leather.
