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.
Offley are renowned for their expressive and fruit-forward Vintage Ports. Winemaker Luís Sottomayor describes the 2018 vintage as “one of the best, if not the best, vintage years I have witnessed”.
Deep ruby in colour. On the nose intense aromas of red berries are coupled with floral notes of violet and heather, along with balsamic nuances and spice. On the palate it has great structure with firm but ripe tannins and a lively acidity which carries the intense flavours onto the long finish.
