New Douro 2004 tasting
The wines
of Churchill Estates  

Rua da Fonte Nova 5, 4400 156 Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal

A relative newcomer on the Port scene, founded by Johnny Graham (pictured) in 1981, Churchill have now begun making table wines, too. Iíve tried a few vintages of their wines, and come away thinking that they are on the right sort of lines, aiming at elegance and balance rather than power.

Churchill Estates 2004
Smooth, sweet, supple fruity dark fruits nose leading to a supple ripe palate, showing some elegance and good acidity. Really nice purity of fruit here, with good freshness. Perhaps finishes just a touch short? Very good/excellent 91/100
