The Cockburnís Vintage 2007 is blended from Touriga Nacional (45%) and Touriga Franca (40%) sourced from Quinta dos Canais. The balance is made up of a blend of grapes from old vineyards the Quinta das Amendoeiras close to Canais.

Cockburnís managing director and master blender Miguel CŰrte-Real said: ďThe Cockburnís 2007 vintage will be recorded as one of Cockburnís finest due to its great complexity of flavours, balance and rich tannins.

ďThe wineís depth will ensure long ageing potential.Ē
