Churchill's 20 Years Old Tawny Port is an expression of the Douro terroir combined with delicate ageing in seasoned oak casks. The result of this combination is a port full of finesse whilst still retaining Churchill's characteristic fresh identity. A pale red tawny colour with a golden rim. A delicate nose of almonds and red Moreno cherries. Savoury and rich on the palate, without losing the grip, it's a combination of age and finesse, finishing long and fresh.

Country Of Origin: Portugal

Founded in 1981 by John Graham, Churchill’s was the first British Port wine company to have been established in over 50 years.

 

His desire was to set up a company to produce his own, individual style of wine. It was his wife, Caroline Churchill, who provided the company with its name. In an industry where others are hundreds of years old, Churchill's were new challengers to the market. 


In 1999 they bought their own Vineyards – Quinta da Gricha – a 50 hectare Grade “A” Vineyard estate situated on the south bank of the River Douro, in the prestigious Cima Corgo sub-region. All of Churchill's ports are produced here, in traditional granite “lagares” or treading tanks built in 1852.

Since then the company have also produced a table wine business – Churchill Estates, launched in 2004 to grow the wine portfolio.

 

Today Churchill's are known as a high quality “boutique” Port and Douro Wine Company creating premium Port and Douro Wine staying true to traditional methods but with modern innovations to tune each taste and create experiences and events that are truly inventive in the industry.

10 Years Old Tawny Port grapes come from the old vineyards at our Estates located in the Cima Corgo sub-region of the Douro Wine region.

 

A field blend of many varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca and Tinta Francisca goes into this blended Tawny port. After fermentation, the Tawny Port Wine goes through an ageing period in seasoned oak casks for approximately 20 years. Filtered and ready to drink now. Once opened it will keep well for up to one month.
