Cotes du Rhone Villages, Massif d'Uchaux Garance
The domain takes its name from a shelter built with dry stones resistant to the summer and harsh winter weather. Gabriel d'Ardhuy, famous winemaker and owner of Domaine d'Ardhuy in Burgundy, acquired in 1981 a property of 112 acres, in one piece, at the heart of the Massif of Uchaux, northeast of Vaucluse in Southern Cotes du Rhone. He entrusted the property to Marie-Pierre, one of his seven daughters.

Vintage Port Half Bottle 37.5cl
Fonseca declares its vintages only in the most exceptional of years, and in 2011, like many, Fonseca benefitted from a perfect ending to the growing season, ensuring optimum ripeness for their grapes. This allowed deep, powerful and aromatic wines to be made on each of the Fonseca Quintas in the Távora and Pinhão valleys. 2011 has thus given Fonseca another opportunity to express the best characteristics of its vintage port to conoisseurs: its concentration of black fruits, its firm tannic grip, its dense velvety texture and its vibrant aromatics. It bears the promise of many years of development in bottle.

10 Year Old White Port
A fairly rare style of port, the 10 years old white is characterised by skin contact and oxidative maturation. It is made in the same way as aged tawnies, with slow aging in pipes in the Messias lodges. The white grapes undergo a long period of skin maceration and are foot trodden. Following the addition of grape brandy, the White Port spends a year in large oak vats, followed by ageing in traditional oak pipes for a period of between 7 and 15 years.

BIOMA Vinha Velha Vintage Port - Last Bottle.
The 2011 Bioma “Vinha Velha”, is a single vineyard Vintage Port Wine from aged vines at Vinha da Pisca (mostly + 80 years old), which is cultivated organically. A hot site, which produces impressive tannins, it formed the backbone of Niepoort Vintage Ports for many years. However,the best parcels were set aside for this wine in 2011, 2009, 2008 and (known then as Pisca) in 2007. Like Niepoort Vintage Port, Bioma was 100% foot trodden with 100% stems. It was then aged in pipes (550 litre)and will be bottled in the third year after the harvest (2014) which, says Niepoort, is what happened in the “old days” when wines were shipped to England in pipes, and bottled later.
