Christmas Fine and Rare; Port and Cheese Tasting
Fine and Rare Port and Cheese Tasting
A real treat for all you Port lovers! A tasting devoted to this wintery warmer and the chance to enjoy it alongside some delicious cheeses from our local specialist cheese partner, Amaretto Delicatessen.
The emphasis of the tasting will be on exploring a range of different styles of Port and enjoying them with a special selection of different cheeses from a crumbly, nutty mature vintage cheddar to soft and salty blues. Many people enjoy a tipple of Port (usually a Ruby or LBV) style in the winter, but we will explore the full range of styles and flavours that this quintessentially British drink has to offer.
The evening will kick off with an aperitif - a white Port served over ice topped up with Fentimans tonic, a great way to wake up the taste buds. We will then enjoy 6 fine Ports:
- a light and fruity Ruby Port
- a soft and smooth LBV (Late Bottle Vintage Port)
- a nutty and caramel-like aged Tawny Port
- a Single Quinta Vintage Port; a rare treat from a single vineyard site
- a Vintage Port, beautifully aged and complex
- A new-world Port look-a-like (with a local back-story) to see how it compares
Many of the Ports are hard to find outside of specialist wine merchants and often exceptionally expensive, so if you would like the chance to taste them all side by side then book quickly!
