Lea & Sandeman review2009 was a very challenging year in the Douro. Following three consecutive dry years, yields were incredibly low but of very high quality. Of the three principal Warre’s Quintas, two have cooler microclimates which enabled them to produce wines which were considered of Warre Vintage Port quality. This Vintage Port is, notwithstanding, cast in a classic mould, with the staying power for very long term ageing. 2009 marks the 200th Anniversary of the liberation of Oporto by the Anglo-Portuguese Army led by the Duke of Wellington. Captain William Warre was awarded the country’s highest military honour, the Order of São Bento d’Aviz, for his courageous efforts against the French Army. The Symington Family are only releasing 500 cases (6,000 bottles – each numbered) of this exceptional Vintage Port. Warre’s & the Symington Family are donating £48 for every case sold to the British Charity ‘Help for Heroes’, so that William Warre’s valiant efforts of 200 years ago continue to help today’s soldiers.
