Colheita Port (Includes Kopke presentation box)
A superb vintage year that developed well for both Vintage and Colheita ports. Macaroon, almond and cherry highlights along a deep, smooth caramel backbone deliver a long, creamy, toasty finish.

Attractive amber colour. Rich and perfumed nose dominated by the presence of the dried fruits, harmoniously involved by the spice notes. Smooth and silky in the taste, reveals an amazing structure and a good volume. The elegance describes this delicate whole and is extended in the endless and distinct finish.

Vintage Sercial Madeira (Includes gift box as illustrated)
***Wine & Spirits Magazine – February 2016 edition (“Year's Best Madeira”) – 95 Points***
***Wine Spectator Magazine – February 2016 edition – 95 Points***
The 1975 Sercial, which was bottled in October 2015, has a mellow bouquet with hints of toffee apple, sea spray and hazelnut. It is very focused and refined, nothing too showy here. The palate is fresh and citric on the entry: sour lemon mingling with dried honey, orange zest, walnut and a touch of tobacco. There is appreciable weight in the mouth, refreshing as Sercial can often be, with a focused, marine-influenced finish.

Colheita Port (Includes Calem Box as shown)
This is a superb colheita port from Calem. It has a beautiful dark tawny colour and a smooth bouquet of classic tawny notes (wood, caramel etc.). The palate was more acidic and a bit alcoholic which prickled a pit on the tounge. Not terribly sweet, but nice with a healthy aftertaste of nuts, coffee, tobacco and caramel.
