#8. FOR NIGHT TIME – SOMETHING STRONG AND A LITTLE SWEET
For many Port is associated with the Holidays so you better get some. And just in case you’re a little confused by the labels here’s a fast explanation.
Basically there are two styles:
1. Vintage-style which is dark/manly. Think Cabernet. The traditional ‘Port & Cheese’ wine.
2. Tawny-style which is pale/feminine. Think Pinot Noir. A fireside sipper.
Graham’s offers a fantastic edition of the Vintage-style – concentrated, rich and warming. For a mellow, sexy Tawny experience look for Ferreira. Or get some of each and be prepared for everything and anything.
