- Churchill's Port
Churchill’s 1997 is a Vintage Port Wine in the classic style; not as ripe as the 1994 but with a concentration of fresher fruit. The wine has a good tannin structure which binds and balances the fruit and ensures good ageing potential.
The 1997 vintage port has aromas of blackcurrant and dried fruits with flowery and grassy notes combined with the scent of cloves and red fruits. Well structured on the palate, the port is powerful, spicy, full bodied and aromatic.
