Fortified Wines

Whilst the vast majority of our fortified wine range comes from the Douro Valley – the home of Port – we have more recently expanded our focus to include our range of sherries and madeiras.

Madeira wine might be one of the most storied wines, with its history synonymous with that of the island’s own. Madeira has long been popular, notably with reports of George Washington advising to ‘drink a pint of Madeira daily’. Madeira has undergone a renaissance in recent years in part because of its versatility as a dessert wine due to its natural high acidity. Its unique taste comes from alternately heating and cooling the wine for six month intervals but there are four traditional styles which correspond to the different grape varietals used in the production of Madeira.

Back onto the mainland is the truly magical home of Port in the Douro Valley. Port’s perception, again, has changed dramatically in recent years; it is no longer merely just a drink for the Christmas table. The focus here is on red ports with multiple styles including Vintage, Tawny, LBV, Colheita, Reserva and Single Quinta. The illustrious Port houses are consistently producing wines that offer world class quality at affordable prices, something that is virtually unmatched across any other classic wine region.

Finally, we head South-East to Jerez; the home of sherry. Sherry starts its life as a dry-fermented white wine, then fortified with the addition of grape spirit. Sherry’s uniqueness comes from the use of the solera system (wine being drawn from the bottom-row of barrels then replenished with younger wines from the rows above). Once again, sherry has enjoyed a resurgence in both the drier fino styles and the longer matured sweeter styles like Olorosso.
