This new blend was bottled by Symington Family Estates in 2013 and comprises three earlier vintages. Intense in colour, voluptuous and rich, with the aromas of ripe black fruits - plums, blackberries - given greater complexity by the start of more herbal, woody notes, this offers velvety texture and great length of flavour.
Crusted Port is made in the style of a Vintage wine but is a blend from different harvests, in this case 2009, 2010 and 2011. It was made for us by Symington Family Estates, the biggest landowners in the Douro. This wine was bottled in 2013 with a natural driven cork, and a ‘crust’, or sediment, will form over time. It should be stored and treated like a Vintage port, with the white mark on the bottle uppermost, and ideally stood upright for 24 hours before decanting and serving.
