Crusted Port is a style of wine that was invented by English wine merchants when port was still being shipped in bulk and blended to their specification. it ceased to exist as soon as bulk shipments were stopped. There followed almost a decade before the Portuguese authorities reinstated Crusted port as a special category. Our Crusted Port is made up of the very best wines from two or sometimes three different harvests. It is kept in wood for up to two years and then bottled for further maturation. as this blend is not subject to any fining or filtration it continues to develop and mature in bottle. Given sufficient time, it throws a thick sediment, otherwise called a "Crust”. this is the English word from which it derives its name.
Food pairing
Roasted chestnuts - Stilton cheese or Portuguese Serra cheese.

Producer
Founded in 1981 by John Graham and his wife Caroline Churchill, Churchill’s port is an independent, family-owned Port Wine House -- the first independent port wine house established in more than fifty years. Churchill’s is the only port wine producer who begins with wines produced only from grapes grown in Grade A vineyards. And according to Robert Parker, Jr., writing in The Wine Advocate, "Churchill's has established an impeccable reputation for superb quality.”
