Producer: Warre's

Warrior is the oldest mark of Port in the world, having been shipped continuously since the 1750s. The name Warrior was branded on the casks of Warre’s finest Vintage Character wine since the earliest days of the firm. The traditional style has been maintained over the years and it is today a classic full-bodied wine with wonderful richness and balance. GRAPE VARIETIES: The grapes used in the production of Warre’s Warrior are a blend of traditional Portuguese varieties from the Douro Valley, such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, and Tinto Cão.

VINIFICATION: Warre’s Warrior under-goes fermentation with natural yeast at between 24-28ºc. Once the must has fermented to the desired degree of sweetness (usually within 48 hours), fortification takes place with grape brandy at 77% v/v (generally 80% must / 20% brandy).

AGEING: Warre’s Warrior is aged in oak casks for some 4 to 5 years at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia,.after which the wines are drawn off and bottled after a light filtration.

TASTING NOTES: Deep red colour, with intensely rich aromas of ripe red fruits and spices. On the palate well balanced and full-bodied, with a long and complex finish.

SERVING TIPS: - Does not need decanting. - The wine is ready to drink when bottled, but will maintain its quality in bottle. - Serve at room temperature 18ºc, or slightly chilled in hot weather. - Superb with cheese, nuts or dried fruit after a meal.
