      Winemaker Notes

      The 2003 is a big, ripe Vintage Port Wine. It has a full, dark colour with a strong purple hue. The nose is closed but powerful and complex with an underlying aroma of concentrated ripe berries. On the palate there is good intensity, excellent natural acidity and a very fine long finish.

      Wine Enthusiast
      An impressive, finely tannic Port with solid, ripe fruits and great black jelly and fig flavors. Imported by Frederick Wildman and Sons, Ltd.
      WS 90
      Wine Spectator
      Peppery aromas, with lots of crushed berries. Medium- to full-bodied, with light sweetness and a soft, round tannic structure. Not on the same level as the fabulous 2000.

      The producers, Churchill-Graham LTDA., is the first independent port wine house to be established in more than fifty years. It was the creation of John Graham and his wife Caroline Churchill in 1981. John Graham is a scion of the Graham port family, which has given its name to excellent ports for almost two centuries.

      Churchill's is the only port wine producer who begins with wines produced only from grapes in Grade A vineyards, as designated by the Port Wine Institute. He then blends them into a range of ports, which, being true to the traditions of port wines, are very distinctive.

      Best known for intense, impressive and age-worthy fortified wines, Portugal relies almost exclusively on its many indigenous grape varieties. Bordering Spain to its north and east, and the Atlantic Ocean on its west and south coasts, this is a land where tradition reigns supreme, due to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation. A long and narrow but small country, Portugal claims considerable diversity in climate and wine styles, with milder weather in the north and significantly more rainfall near the coast.

      While Port (named after its city of Oporto on the Atlantic Coast at the end of the Douro Valley), made Portugal famous, Portugal is also an excellent source of dry red and white wines of various styles.

      The Douro Valley produces full-bodied and concentrated dry red wines made from the same set of grape varieties used for Port, which include Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz (Spain’s Tempranillo), Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão, among a long list of others in minor proportions.

      Other dry wines include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde white wine, made in the north, and the bright, elegant reds and whites of the Dão as well as the bold, and fruit-driven reds and whites of the southern, Alentejo.

      The nation’s other important fortified wine, Madeira, is produced on the eponymous island off the North African coast.

      Port is a sweet, fortified wine with numerous styles: Ruby, Tawny, Vintage, Late Bottled Vintage (LBV), White, Colheita, and a few unusual others. It is blended from from the most important red grapes of the Douro Valley, based primarily on Touriga Nacional with over 80 other varieties approved for use. Most Ports are best served slightly chilled at around 55-65°F.
