Hailing a vintage

Long ageing in wood has produced a lovely brick colour and complexity of flavour, with evolved aromas of dried fruits, candied peel, figs, dark chocolate and vanilla. Sweet and rich, this tawny port is a bargain and perfect with a tart tatin or cheese. From €16, reduced from €18.25, 19.5pc, at SuperValu, Tesco, and O’Briens. Also available at Dunnes Lighter in style than a vintage port, ruby port is made for enjoying now. Packed full of red fruit, strawberries and spice, this is made from handpicked Duoro grapes and aged in old oak casks in the Sandeman lodges at Villa Nova de Gaia. Also delicious in a hot port.
