Douglas Vale Historic Vineyard
Portobello (previously Isabella Ruby Port)
Winter is upon us and there is a definite chill in the air which is only satisfied by a fireplace and delicious port to finish the evening meal.
The Douglas Vale port is a fortified wine which is produced using the Isabella grape variety hence the name. The wine is matured in oak casks for eighteen months giving it a rich creamy mouth feel. The flavours are of luscious raisins and Christmas pudding. This is a port which is perfect for your drinking pleasure now, but will also improve with cellaring.
