2000 DELAFORCE Vintage Port 75cl (Douro, Portugal)
Style - Sweet & Fortified
Grapes - Touriga Naçional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz
Tasting - Always one of the quicker maturing Ports, Delaforce shows a bright red fruit character and silky milk chocolate texture. There's confiture of fig and prune mid-palate with a light dusting of clove and allspice on the end to cheer it along.
FYI: Since 2001 Delaforce is owned by the Taylor-Fladagate-Fonseca group and is steadily regaining it's once mighty reputation.
