Reserve Port is a house blend of premium wines produced from the same top grade “A” vineyards from which Churchill’s vintage ports are sourced. Reserve Port retains the structure and fresh fruit of a young vintage but has been softened by its age in wood and filtration prior to bottling.
Reserve Port has a bright, full ruby colour with violet tones. On the nose, very distinctive with fresh blueberries and hints of eucalyptus. A very vibrant young Port with plenty of natural acidity with a good balance.
Food Pairing: A delicious Port served on its own but also excellent with fruit or chocolate desserts and soft cheeses.
History: Although Churchill’s is considered a baby of the Port trade both in scale and age having only been founded in 1981, it has its roots deeply imbedded into quality Port history. Indeed Johnny Graham’s family used to own the famous Graham’s Port until it was sold in 1970. He and his Wife, Caroline (maiden name Churchill) created the company when Johnny left a job at Taylor’s where he had been in the winemaking team, having spent the years before that working for Cockburns.
