Late-Bottled Vintage Port (LBV) spends between four and six years in cask prior to bottling. Thus, the wines obtain some of the mellowed tones of a Tawny Port, while retaining the youthful fruit and directness of a Ruby Port. LBV Port is always the product of a single vintage.
In the 18th Century, Van Zellers & Co held a fleet of more than 27 ships. It was responsible for the first trade journey to Eastern Europe. Our commercial relationships with Russia reached its peak during this time and were relevant to the point that Czarina Catherine the Great appointed Pedro van Zeller, our 6th grand-father, as the Consul for Russia in Portugal.
Great with chocolate desserts and cheeses.
