As the name indicates, it will form a 'crust' or sediment in the bottle and should be decanted before being served. The formation of the crust is a natural process that occurs in the finest full bodied ports. It is an indication that the wine will continue to improve in bottle and develop its aroma and character with age. Powerful and aromatic on the nose, this fine port exhibits generous aromas of dark berry fruit, spice and chocolate. Layered and complex in the mouth with flavours of raisin, spice, eucalyptus and blackcurrant that follow through to a long, focused finish. This excellent port should benefit from being decanted and would make a delicious partner to cheese boards and desserts made with chocolate or dark berry fruits. This stylish gift pack comes equipped with two bespoke branded port glasses and would make a great gift idea for any port drinker or wine enthusiast.£4.87 per 100.00ml
