Crusted port is often just short of Vintage port quality. It is made using the same method, but often using a blend of different vintages instead of a single year.
This specific crusted port is a blend of two Vintage Port years, aged in wooden casks for two to three years. It is then left to age for a further six months in seasoned oak before being bottled unfiltered. Just like a vintage port.
This Crusted port is ready to drink now, though has potential to age for a further ten years. In which time it will develop mature complexities.
Bottled in 2006
