More about our Port Glasses collection
The Port glass brings alive the complex plummy-spicy flavours of Vintage and Tawny ports. Both bottle-aged Vintage port and wood-aged Tawny varieties exhibit intensely rich but subtly different flavours. While it is usual to serve port in smaller glasses, with stems that allow a generous amount to be poured and then for the wine to be properly nosed and appreciated.
Tannic Vintage port will benefit from being served rather warmer than Tawny, which has lost its tannin during the long period spent in the barrel. Any port that is well aged will have thrown a heavy sediment. It is important therefore to decant port wine carefully before serving. Unfortunately, once opened, port rarely keeps. To enjoy it at its best your port should be finished up within two or three weeks.
We recommend the crystal port glasses in our WineMaster range which are designed specifically to enjoy and reach the fullest of flavours from every wine.
