Casal Jordoes - Finest Reserve Port (750ml)
Rich fruit cake aromas, dark spicy fruit flavours with lovely jammy sweetness and soft, ripe tannins. This Tawny Port is surprisingly full bodied, and dark in colour, which is a little unusual, as most are lighter (hence the name Tawny) as they are aged in small casks for several years only, making them really good value. Youthful and exhuberant in style, it can be enjoyed now, without ageing, and wil not throw a sediment. We suggest drinking with dessert, maybe something chocolatey. Cheese of course, is anotehr classic alternative. Can also be appreciated lightly chilled to calm the alcohol feel down a little and lift drinkability. We are hoping (with time) this rare organic Port estate may be able to release a 10 or 20 year old organicTawny in the future!
Country of Origin
Casal Jordoes - Finest Reserve Port (half bottle) (375ml)
A Port lover's dream. Made from Touriga Francesca, Tinta Roriz and others too, it's a dense, inky-purple colour, and is a richly hedonistic experience (even in half bottle!). Complex, super ripe berried fruits are gently spiced, and its sweet and unctious palate is both elegant and balanced too, with real length. Casal dos Jordoes was the first and indeed only fully certified Port producer. Try their Tawny and Vintage too, all are drinking very well now, but will age gracefully. Remember also, there is no need to drink the bottle at one sitting, once opened it will keep well for a couple of weeks at least. Enjoy near a warming fire on its own, or with mature cheeses.
Domaine Bousquet Fortified Malbec Dulce (500ml)
A four month-long maceration ensures that the maximum amount of flavour has been extracted from the skins of the Malbec grapes. Good natural acidity is an essential factor in quality sweet wines and there's just the right amount here to keep in check the layers of plum fruits, chocolate, coffee, caramel, spice and marmalade flavours you'll find here. A delicious way to end dinner, serve it at no more than 15°c.
Piedra Luenga - Amontillado (16%vol)(50cl)
Structured and complex, it is dry and woody with hints of eucalyptus. Full bodied, it will partner heavier foods such as mushroom-based sauces and aged cheeses.
Piedra Luenga - Fino (15%vol) (50cl)
A delicate dry, saline, sherry-style wine made from Pedro Ximenez grapes in southern Spain. The perfect tapas wine. Aged in a series of barrels (criaderas) for two or more years, this is a fresh and fruity aperitif wine, which will pair superbly well with cheese, nuts or olives. Serve chilled in a wine glass. This wine is made without fortification (no alcohol is added) unlike most sherry Finos.

Piedra Luenga - Oloroso (16%vol) (50cl)
This is a rich and enticing mahogany brown colour, as is typical of Oloroso style sherries that are aged in direct contact with the air, rather than under a layer of flor (wild yeast). Smooth and harmonious, with burnt chocolate and clove notes in its long, nutty finish. Sublime with figs, nuts and manchego cheese.
Sierra Morena Sherry (750g)
Sumptuous fortified wine, with rich amber colour and a palate of hazelnuts, almond, apricot and raisins. Sherry.
Grape: Palamino Fino.
Sierra Morena, Spain.
