Single Harvest White Tawny Port
Special Offer | Was £34 | Now £24.95
Exclusive to VWP

2009 White Colheita Port - 50cl Bottle.
This rare white port-wine has been stored in seasoned oak casks since the 2009 harvest until it was bottled this year. White ports are a true rarity and this is an outstanding example.

Tasting Notes: The 2009 Palmer white port has a golden amber colour. On the nose it has a very fine, elegant aroma of honey, and peach infused with a spicy redolence of citrus peel and cinnamon. There are layers of complexity here with mint and a touch of walnut. The palate is perfectly balanced with a fresh acidity and sweetness. It has an amazing rich mellow flavour and an elegant citrus finish that lasts for minutes.

Chateau Yquem, 2009

Sauternes 1er Cru Classe

100 Points Neil martin
Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The 2009 Chateau d'Yquem is one showstopper of a wine and perhaps it is only in a vertical that you realize this is up there among the legendary wines of the past - the 2001 included. It has a wonderful nose that expresses the Semillon component majestically: heady aromas of lemon curd, nectarine, jasmine and honeysuckle that all gain momentum in the glass. The oak is supremely well-integrated. The palate is extremely well-balanced with an unctuous entry. You are immediately knocked sideways by the palpable weight and volume in the mouth, which is almost ""bulbous,"" with layer upon layer of heavily botrytized fruit.

Chateauneuf du Pape, 2009

Les Gallimardes Domaine Giraud
95 Points - Robert Parker
94 Points Wine Spectator

The 2009 Chataeuneuf du Pape wine from Domaine Giraud is a profound, smokey, leathery nose with an intriguing aromatic note like sandalwood. Beautiful palate with a gorgeous, silky texture, and a very sweet impression. Intense, wonderfully scented Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Reviews
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Gallimardes has all the same characteristics, but is more forward and on a faster evolutionary track. Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is not quite as opaque as the 2010's, and its bouquet includes smoky, roasted meat notes intertwined with kirsch liqueur, lavender, licorice, pepper and layer upon layer of glycerin-imbued black cherry and black currant fruit.

Croft Port, 2009

Vintage Port MAGNUM Bottle 1.5Lt

Please Note: This is a rare MAGNUM format.

The Croft Vintage Port 2009 is a deep purple black colour. The nose combines an opulent and seductive fruitiness with an intricate kaleidoscope of complex multidimensional aroma. Pungent resiny scents of eucalyptus and rock rose, notes of lychee and passion-fruit combine with exotic hints of leather, musk and cedar. The palate is round and velvety and the dense but well integrated tannins are wrapped in a cloak of succulent berry fruit flavour. The jammy fruit carries through into the finish where it is lifted by an attractive crispness and pungency.
