Portugal’s most famous and enduring wine export, Port counts among the wine world’s most hedonistic pleasures, and you will find many styles at Corney & Barrow. Ruby Port is relatively inexpensive and easy drinking, offering vibrant, sweet ripe fruit and a kick of alcohol – prized by the French as an aperitif. Tawny Port, whose colour derives from ageing in oak barrels, makes an excellent pre-dinner refresher or partner for the cheeseboard, and Corney & Barrow’s Ten Year Old Tawny is an ideal starting point.
LBV (Late Bottled Vintage) denotes a single vintage Port from premium vineyards. Matured in barrels for early drinking, LBV offers a taste of the style and quality of vintage Port, at modest prices. The ultimate collector’s wine, Vintage Port is the result of exceptional years and the very best vineyards, requiring decades of storage to attain its deep, silken maturity, and impressive price tag.
