Single Harvest Tawny Port
A 50cl bottle of 2011 vintage Colheita Port Wine from Palmer Port. This is exclusive to Vintage Wine & Port.

Tasting Notes: The 2011 Port from Palmer has a light oak colour. Much elegance on the nose with orange peel, walnuts, figs and a touch of honey. On the palate, there is a lightness that is balanced by good acidity. This port wine delivers a beautiful flavour supported by a long, long finish. Outstanding.

Gigi Rosso - Riserva Ulivo
A 2011 Gigi Rosso Barolo Red Wine
In the heart of our Arione Estate, an olive tree has survived cold Piedmontese winters for more than 100 years, a testament to the exceptional microclimate of this unique position. In the best vintages, grapes from the Ulivo vineyard (approximately 2 acres or 0.8 Ha) reach a degree of ripeness and intensity of perfume that give the wine its extraordinary bouquet. It is aged for more than four years in the barrel and then the bottle only in the fifth year can the wine legally become a Riserva. Approximately 3,900 bottles are produced (only in the best vintages).

Vintage Port - Single Bottle in Presentation Box
The 2011 Burmester Vintage Port Wine is, according to Kim Marcus (Wine Spectator), an "intensely fruity" wine with great complexity and concentration, notes of "raspberries, black plums and wild cherries." This wine offers a "refined finish" with a touch of "dark chocolate, tea and brown sugar." It is a wine that, according to the critic, is ready to drink but has the ability to continue ageing during the next three decades.
"The 2011 J W Burmester has a sweeter, comparatively floral bouquet with open, generous scents of ripe dates, black plum and raisin that need to show a little more restraint.

Vintage Port 6x75cl Bottle Case
These 2011 Vintage Port Wines from Burmester are bottled in the cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia during the second spring after the harvest; this has been the process since the beginning of the 20th century. Produced according to the traditional method of foot treading in classic stone "lagares", a Vintage is only declared in years of outstanding and exceptional quality.
The association of Vintage Port with a mature blue cheese such as Stilton is one of the great classic food and wine combinations. The soft buttery texture, mellow character and piquancy of the cheese are perfectly matched by the powerfully majestic flavours of the Vintage Port.

The 2011 Chateau Palmer red wine comes fifty years after the legendary 1961 vintage, this year’s wine stood out for its extremely low yields; the result of hail, and extreme heat in June. The concentrated result was both beautiful and unexpected, which should herald excellent ageing potential.
The opaque blue/purple-coloured 2011 Palmer reveals a stunning bouquet of licorice, truffles, camphor, spring flowers, black raspberries and black currants. One of the superstars of the vintage, this brilliant 2011 possesses superb concentration and purity, medium to full body, and remarkable length of close to a minute.
