Tasting note

The Terra Prima Organic Port is just terrific. The nose is so fresh and well defined with blackcurrant fruit infused with faint touches of mandarin, dark cherries, fresh dates and liquorice. The palate is nicely balanced with slightly tarry black fruit. It offers lifted acidity and a spirituous nature without any loss in tension and there is a pleasant kick of volatility towards the refined, harmonious finish. I appreciate the edginess and tension on this wine, a sense of elegance that I usually associate more with Taylors than with a Fonseca. This comes highly recommended. Drink now-2020. Score - 92.

Reserve ruby port, with its firm tannins and concentrated fruitiness, is the style most suited for the classic port and cheese combination. It is particularly good with blue-veined and richly flavored soft cheeses. It is also delicious with bitter chocolate.
Liquor Marts
One of the very few organic ports. Exuberant dark cherry and ripe cassis - bigbold and upfront fruit. Firm, ripe, peppery tannins and a long finish. Reserve Ports do not get better than this.
