Directors Tawny is selected from the finest old tawny ports of the Robertson Partnership ( Taylor + Fonseca ). It can be enjoyed straight from the bottle, slightly chilled in summer for its nutty sumptuous fruit.
The design and selection of our House range is quite literally, an ongoing project. Tastings are numerous and rigorous; our aim is to find wines that we believe are both representative of their origins and that have an extra quality over and above our competitors' equivalents. Wines that do not continue to produce the quality we expect we de-list. Our current house list represents a selection of old favourites, 61 Reserve Claret, Pomerol, Sarcey and 250th Cuvee Champagnes and Directors Tawny. Alongside these is our newest label, our House Red Burgundy which has been praised time and again by clients and press alike. It is a real filip to our range and now comes from one of the great names in the Côte-de-Nuits. With grapes from in-and-around the villages of Vosne and Nuits it is utterly pure and refined red burgundy at a price that simply cannot be beaten.
The Douro valley is the home of Port production and is one of the oldest demarcated wine regions in the world. The vineyards follow a band of Schist along the valley rising up in steep terraced slopes from the river. Upstream lies Spains Ribera del Duero. Increasingly, unfortified wines are produced here, but it is really for great vintage port that the region is known.
