Fine Ruby, LBV & Crusted Port

Good, honest and well-priced young Ports, Ruby has an emphasis on fruit and freshness. We are particularly pleased with those under the Tanners Patrono label. Late Bottled Vintage Port is kept in barrel for up to six years; this is twice as long as true Vintage Port. This provides a more complex style than Ruby and most, like Tanners LBV, are filtered so no decanting is needed. Some with ‘traditional’ on the label are not filtered, which brings us to Crusted. This is a rarer British invention; a blend of vintages, it spends less time in wood than LBV and usually shows the year of bottling. The ‘crust’ refers to the sediment that it throws.
