Dixon’s Double Diamond 10 Year Old Tawny Port 375ml
And finally, Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a drop of port!
With production dating back to 1715 – Double Diamond was a firm favourite of Charles Dickens. The grapes come from the finest vineyards of the sun-baked upper Douro Valley. Carefully matured in oak casks in the cool, dark lodges of Vila Nova de Gaia, it develops a rich, tawny colour and a smooth, complex taste with hints of apricots and dried fruits.
Food pairing: Enjoy as a digestif, or perfect with the Christmas cheese board!
