product Details

Fortnum & Mason 2002 Crusted Port

Crusted Ports are Ruby Ports blended from multiple vintages, matured in oak casks for a period of approximately 3 years before being bottled without filtration.  During normal filtration, grape sediment would be removed from the Port; without filtration, this sediment remains within the wine, eventually forming a solid crust which adds slight complexity.  The premise behind Crusted Ports is to achieve a wine which falls somewhere between a normal Ruby and a Late Bottled Vintage Port in terms of complexity and flavour development.

This bottle is in excellent condition: label & foil/wax seal intact; cork/closure secure, no leakage.

Important Notice

We would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please contact us for a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen in the images.

Please note: Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
