Churchill's LBV Port 2005
Churchill’s Late Bottled Vintage Port (LBV) is produced from the same Quintas that make Churchill’s declared Vintage Ports, so the result is an LBV with a real vintage pedigree: the excellent intensity of fruit and finesse.
Like all other Churchill’s Ports, the component wines of this Vintage Port have been treaded by foot in traditional granite lagares (treading tanks). Following the vintage the young LBV Ports are carefully tasted, selected and blended. The blended Port is then matured in large oak vats during 4 years where it softens, shedding its harsh tannins, but without losing its full bodied, rich fruit flavours. Finally ,after 4 years in wood vats it is bottled unfiltered into dark Vintage Port bottles and laid down to finish its maturation in our temperature conditioned cellars.
Black Cherry colour with rich blackberry. Smooth and complex, with juicy flavours of wild berries and black chocolate.
