PRODUCER NOTE

William Offley founded the eponymous wine merchant in London in 1737, and soon began importing and bottling Port. By 1787, Offley was described as ‘one of the most considerable English houses at Porto.’ The house became famous for its association with Joseph James Forrester, later the Baron of Forrester, who came to Oporto in 1831 and became famous for mapping the Douro, and for painting many of its landscapes. Since 1997, Offley has thrived under the ownership of Sogrape. Quality, derived from the fact that their best wines come from prime sites in the Cima Corgo region, has once again moved it up the ranks of Port producers.

PRODUCT NOTE

LBV Ports are made to be early drinking examples of top vintage Ports and as such have an intense structure and fruit flavour. Bottled after two more years in cask than Vintage, the wine is from one single harvest and indicative of the year in which it is made.

TASTING NOTE

This port is deep, almost opaque, ruby red in colour. It has intense and complex aromas of red and black fruits and undertones of cocoa and chocolate, On the palate, it is full bodied with a balanced acidity, good quality tannins and notes of cocoa and red fruit that invite a harmonious finish.
