Butler Nephew & Co Crusted Port

Quick Overview

The style and depth of a vintage port without the price tag. Crusted port emulates the style and quality of a vintage port, with powerful aromas and complex, intense notes of plum, raisins, spice and hints of eucalyptus notes over ripe berry fruit. You'll need to decant this, as it's unfiltered and forms a sediment in the bottle.

Further Details

Butler, Nephew & Cº. was founded in Oporto in 1730. The company’s traditional crusted port mimics the style and quality of a vintage port, with powerful aromas and complex, intense notes of plum, raisins, spice and hints of eucalyptus notes over ripe berry fruit.

Unlike Vintage Port, which has to be made from grapes from a single harvest, Crusted Port gives the company port blender the opportunity to use the best quality characteristics of different vintages.

Crusted Port is bottled unfiltered, and as the name indicates it will form a “crust”, a sediment in the bottle. Decant this unfiltered, multi-vintage bargain just like a vintage, and savour its finesse along with its moreish price—all the more tasty considering this wine was bottled in 2004.

The 2015 bottling of this fortified treat is the first crusted port ever to win a Decanter gold medal, achieving a score of 96/100

“Deep and youthful in colour; very elegant on the nose with expressive floral fruit; similarly elegant and supple on the palate with some maturity evident, succulent berry fruit backed by firm tannins. A really lovely wine, well over half-way to a good vintage Port.” Decanter Wine Awards 2017 Gold Medal
