Wine Advocate 92 points - The Churchill’s Vintage Port has a comparatively light, aniseed-tinged bouquet with orange blossom that wafts seductively from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannins and very well-judged acidity that lends this young Churchill’s great precision. This is a very harmonious Vintage Port with a lovely touch of salted licorice towards the finish. Beautiful. 3,000 cases declared. Tasted May 2013. (Jun 2013)
Wine Spectator 97 points - Offers intense aromas and flavors of violet, cherry and dark plum, showing an almost exotic velvety nature, with loads of cream and spice accents. Delivers notes of chocolate and vanilla extract on the explosive finish. Very alluring. Best from 2030 through 2060. From Portugal.—K.M. (Nov 13 2013)
Vintage Port is the flagship of the Churchill's range. The powerful backbone is achieved through a combination of wines from our various Grade A quintas. Renowned for being full bodied, well balanced with deep jammy fruit.
|Walnuts – Otherwise best enjoyed on its own.
|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.”
