Portuguese winery Esporão’s first vintage Port, Quinta dos Murças, is being rolled out to the UK. 

The 2011 vintage, which was first launched in Portugal last October, will be distributed in the UK by Barwell & Jones from this month, the agency said yesterday (17 February). The 20% abv product will be targeted at the UK on-trade and “independent retail”, a Barwell & Jones spokesperson said. 

“The winery had to date not produced any Ports, so head winemaker David Baverstock wanted to take full advantage of their old, low-yielding vines that produce such concentrated grapes and are therefore perfect for vintage Port - as well as for complex and intense wines,” the spokesperson said.
