Lodge Reserve Port (Smith Woodhouse)
Smith Woodhouse, Lodge Reserve Port, Duoro, Portugal, NVTinta Barroca, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional RUBY RED WITH BRIGHT FRUIT FLAVORS AND SWEET BAKING SPICES Sourcing from the small 7 hectare vineyard of Quinta da Madalena, all the grapes are still hand harvested and foot tread. In general their ports are a bit less sweet than most. The Lodge Reserve is a blend of reserve wines aged in barrels to mellow their flavor, but not too long to maintain the fresh fruit flavors of a ruby port. This is medium to full-bodied with a warm fruitiness in the center and sweet spices. It’s very rich and a great port value. Serving Suggestions: Traditional with veined cheeses like Roquefort, Gorgonzola or Stilton - we offer Hook’s 1 year blue and Rogue’s Smoked Blue. Also great on its own as a dessert.
