"Red Rock Terrace displays a beautiful core of blackcurrant, crème de cassis and juicy red plums. Hiding behind the gorgeous sweet fruit, fragrant notes of cordial, cocoa and liquorice emerge with time in the glass. Laser-beam precision is supported by the finest, grippiest tannins imaginable. Those tannins carry the beautifully concentrated fruit to a long, long finish. Effortless and perfectly...

"Brooding yet sensuous, Gravelly Meadow reveals earthy, savoury, meaty notes the nose, along with blackcurrants, blueberries and mulberries. There are subtle hints of herbs, tobacco and cedarwood. Once again, the tannic structure is impeccable and perfectly integrated. This says more about the superb quality of the fruit than it does about the 100% new oak. Gravelly Meadow is Diamond Creek’s...

Fortified Wine Process

Not only does fortifying wine helps to preserve it, but the process also adds distinct flavours. A neutral grape spirit is added to the wine before fermentation, which kills yeast, and leaves behind a residual sugar. The result is a sweeter and stronger wine than most

Port Wine

One of the best known types of fortified wine is port. The name port wine can only be given to those produced in the Douro Valley in northern Portugal. Port wines are typically fortified with aguardente for sweetness and to boost alcohol content. The most commonly used grapes for port wine production include: Tinta Barroca, Tempranillo, Tinto Cão, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Francesa. The four main types are Ruby, Tawny, White and Rosé – ruby port is the type most commonly produced. 

At Armit Wines, we stock a number of vintage ports, which are produced with the intension of being aged. Often, vintage port is produced in stainless steel barrels before bottling, and should then be left for at least 10 years, until ‘proper’ drinking age.
