Colheita Port (Comes in Niepoort carton gift box as illustrated)
The small port shipping house of Niepoort has been handcrafting outstanding ports since 1842. Dirk Niepoort is currently the fifth generation of the family to personally oversee every wine which leaves the famous lodge in Vila de Gaia. Their extraordinary reputation is founded on a commitment to ancient vineyards, still treading most of their grapes in old granite ‘lagares' and bottling without filtration. As such, they remain regarded by many as the guardians of authentic port production.
Colheita ports are the products of a single year – in
this case 2005 - but are aged far longer in traditional casks.

The Quevedo Vintage Port 2005 is a dark cherry colour. The flavour is of ripe fruit - evocative of black plum and redcurrant. Earthy and well balanced with a touch of dry wood. Some minutes later raspberry and violet flower flavour emerge with a lovely hint of soy. On the palate: balanced and voluminous with very good tannins. Sweet oak combined with dried fruit such as fig, plum or date. Persistent and unique finish.
Quevedo is a family brand producing quality Port from vineyards they have owned for more than one hundred years. The new generation of owners, Oscar and Claudia, are innovating to produce some amazing ports.

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe,
WA - Beautiful, elegant red, blue and black fruits (89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot) as well as some graphite and spice notes jump from the glass of the 2005 Lafite Rothschild. Medium-bodied, with superb purity and texture, this is not a blockbuster by any means, but a meticulously made, lovely-textured Pauillac. Long and pure, this wine should drink well for 25-30 years. There is no danger in pulling the cork on it today. Robert Parker eRobertParker.com 19 Jun 2015
