Warre's has been leading the Port trade since it was established as the first British Port House in 1670. A pioneer of a great tradition with over 300 years of history, Warre’s legacy is built on the superb quality of Warre's Vintage Ports and on an unwavering commitment to quality and successful innovation.
Warre's Vintage Ports are peerless in their expression of poise and elegance. This unsurpassed style is derived from the inherent characteristics of Warre's two principal vineyards; Quinta da Cavadinha and Quinta do Retiro Antigo. They complement each other very well. Cavadinha's location, aspect and altitude translate into a cooler ripening cycle providing the freshness, fine subtle floral aromas and ideal acidity, the latter contributing significantly to the wines' longevity. Retiro Antigo's location in the hotter Rio Torto Valley, combined with the fact that just over 70% of the vineyard is made up of old, mixed vines, results in wines that show great intensity, concentration and complexity. Their powerful structure also provides great staying power.
Very deep crimson colour. Rich fresh herbal aromas of gum cistus. Penetrating taste of vibrant blackberry flavours, very spicy with an abundance of tannins and sweetness conveying enormous complexity of flavours. Powerful combination of freshness, elegance and a long, firm finish.
One of the best pairings with Vintage Port is cheese (cream cheese, blue cheese and cured cheese) but it can also be enjoyed alongside many desserts, or simply on its own.
