Delaforce LBVs are bottled after maturing in wood for up to six years, offering an early softness and development. As these Ports are only made available in those years when the harvest has been very good, they constantly produce a mature port of vintage quality, and are ready for drinking without requiring decanting (unlike the main Vintage Ports bottled at two years).
Made in a sweet, open-knit, precocious style, Delaforce's LBV reveals a dense ruby/purple colour as well as sweet, accessible black cherry/blackberry fruit with hints of smoke, earth, and truffles.
This lush, medium to full-bodied, juicy, succulent effort will last for 15+ years. Rich baked fruit with the mellowness of wood ageing. Great balance.
