1997 is a Vintage Port in the classic style; not as ripe as the 1994 but with a concentration of fresher greener fruit. It has what Churchill’s call in the trade a steel girder, that is, a good tannin structure which binds and balances the fruit and ensures good ageing potential. Sourcing is from old vineyards from the sub-region of Cima Corgo in the Douro region, combining the more mature power of Agua Alta with the elegant aromatically green tea styles of Manuela and Fojo. This wine has a field blend from old vineyards (average age over 50 years) including many grape varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cao. This wine has a deep brick red colour. It is appealing on the nose, with notes of fresh mint and menthol. On the palate, a combination of black nougat and green capers, with elegant grip and acidity are seen. It is approachable from 2012-2017. Peak condition 2027-2037. Serve at cellar temperature (12-15 degrees C). Decant before serving. Best appreciated on its own after lunch or dinner, but can also be savoured with rich cheeses or a relaxing cigar. Founded in 1981 by John Graham, Churchill’s was the first British Port wine company to have been established in over 50 years. Churchill’s Port grew from John Graham’s desire to continue his family’s Port making tradition by setting up a company to produce his own, individual style of wine. It was his wife, Caroline Churchill, who provided the company with its name. Compared to other Port Wine shippers, most of which were established around the turn of the18th/19th centuries, Churchill’s history is short. In only 30 years of trading, however, the company has built an enviable reputation for producing Port Wines of good quality, reflected by their good performance at comparative tastings over this time.
