Churchill’s Vintage Port 2016 (20% abv), made in the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior regions, is new from Churchill’s Port. Churchill said its decision to declare 2016 a vintage was based on the “purity, ripeness and intensity of its fruit flavours, but especially on its excellent natural acidity”. A key factor in Churchill’s dry style is the longer fermentation time, which means less added brandy and more natural alcohol, giving the wine more structure. All Churchill’s ports and Douro wines are said to be made only with Grade A grapes and produced “exclusively” with native grape varieties.
