Delaforce - His Eminence's Choice 10 Year Old - Aged Tawny Port 75cl Bottle
75cl Bottle £17.14 In Stock
Description: His Eminence's Choice, the distinguished and most famous of all the Ports produced by Delaforce, was first put on sale back in the 1930's. The label itself was originally taken from the painting purchased by Henry Delaforce in the early 1920's.
The wine is carefully blended after full tasting and examination of Delaforce ports which are selected from the best areas of the Douro port region at every year's production to become reserves for His Eminence. These reserves will remain maturing in casks over many years in Vila Nova de Gaia until they reach the mellow perfection for which it has justly gained much fame.
Fresh, ripe, plummy, raisin aromas. Rich, full, mouth-filling; delicious jam raisin and date flavours. Very well balanced, elegant and harmonious port wine.
His Eminence's Choice is best served at room temperature or lightly chilled in the summer to enjoy the rich bouquet and taste.

"Delaforce produces two excellent Tawnies that have long been among my favourites". Richard Mayson, Port and the Douro.
Founded in 1868 by George Henry Delaforce, this is certainly a name to conjure with in the world of Port. With wonderful stocks of old Tawny wines, an evnviable and deserved reputation for producing delicious white Port, and very competitively prices throughout, the wines of Delaforce are an excellent choice.
To this already exciting range of Ports, we can add, specifically for 2005, an overhaul of the entire range of packaging, which supports the excellent quality and reputation of Delaforce Ports.
