Douro

Douro

Douro is one of the key Portuguese wine regions, producing both the world-famous fortified Port wine along with a wide range of standard non-fortified wines. The dry, continental climate and steep terraced vineyards centred in the Douro river valley make the region an ideal holiday destination as well as wine producing region! The style of wines made in the region varies greatly, but the best value is to be found in the unctuous red wines made from local grape varieties.

  • 2012 LBV Port, Messias

    Regular Vintage port is aged in wood for 20 months or so before being transferred to bottles for further ageing, while LBV (Late Bottled Vintage), as the name suggests, is bottled later - between four and six years later.

    This is a relatively long period to age and in this time the port matures and settles down so that when it's bottled, it's ready to drink. Also, you don't need to decant an LBV and can serve it by the glass for a couple of weeks after opening the bottle.

    Messias LBV has delicious black fruit aromas on the nose with notes of intense blackberry at the front, in the mouth there's good concentration and firm tannins.
