Very lush and smooth on the palate, with red fruit and some dried apricot notes. The are hints of spices and wood tones that mellow and round out the acidity. The alcohol is very well integrated, making this Port smooth and easy to drink. D&M Tasting Notes.
This Port is made from the best Reserve wines carefully chosen for their concentrated rich fruit style. After the wines are produced in the vineyards in the Douro, they are brought to the lodge in Oporto where they are left to mellow in oak casks. During ageing the intense fresh fruitiness and vigour of this fine Port matures into the smooth yet assertive Lodge Reserve. Superb served on its own or with dessert or cheese.
Christopher Smith, Member of The British Parliament and Lord Mayor of London, founded a small company to ship Port from the Douro in 1784. Some years later the Woodhouse brothers joined him. Since 1970, Smith Woodhouse has been owned by the Symington family, Port producers since the 19th century.
Smith Woodhouse Ports have outstanding length and structure and are drier than most. Its Vintage Ports show a characteristic opulent rich style, balanced by firm hard tannins. Ageing gives these wines an unmatched elegance. Winery Notes
