Professional Wine Reviews for Churchill Porto 20 Year Old Tawny

Rated 91 by Robert Parker
The NV 20 Years Old Tawny Port is a field blend bottled (in a 500-milliliter bottle) in July 2015 with 102 grams per liter of residual sugar. This takes the 'fresh and friendly' avenue. It is a 20 that relies more on complexity and brightness than pure power. The finish is laced with a touch of rhubarb and herbs. It is quite delicious and more gripping on the finish than I thought it might be at first taste. The mid-palate is just average and there is not a lot of 'old Tawny' flavor concentration. Yet, this works very well and on its own terms, succeeds on class and finesse. Note that this has a bar top cork.

Additional Information on Churchill Porto 20 Year Old Tawny

Winery: Churchill

Region: Porto

The magnificent city of Porto - the capital of Portugal - is located near the mouth of the beautiful Douro river, in the beating heart of the Douro wine region. The Douro region has been regarded as one of the most important viticultural region of Europe for several centuries, and was the third region to be officially recognized and protected as a wine region, with laws having been passed in the mid 18th century regarding its status. Porto is, of course, most famous for the production of Port wine, an aromatic and slightly viscous tawny colored fortified wine, with a fascinating history of seafaring, experimentation and innovation. The vineyards used in the region for the production of Porto's wines contain up to a hundred different grape varietals, resulting in the wide range of Port wines on offer today.

Country: Portugal

Portugal has been an important center for wine production ever since the Phoenicians and Carthaginians discovered that the many native grape varietals that grow in the country could be cultivated for making excellent wines. After all, Portugal has something of an ideal wine producing climate and terrain; lush green valleys, dry, rocky mountainsides and extremely fertile soil helped by long, hot summers and Atlantic winds. Today, such a climate and range of terroir produces an impressive variety of wines, with the best wines said to be coming out of the Douro region, the Alentejo and the Colares region near Lisbon. Portugal has an appellation system two hundred years older than France's, and much effort is made by regulating bodies to ensure that the quality of the country's produce remains high, and the wines remain representative of the regions they are grown in.
