Product Description

  • Port - Fortified Wine
  • Our Special Reserve still has the lusciously ripe, vibrant fruit of youth and lovely tannins, which give it the slightly peppery spice on the tongue. But it also has the elegance of age: the softness and smoothness that can only be achieved by slow ageing in old oak barrels. That's what puts the Special in Special Reserve.
  • Cockburn's Special Reserve was originally introduced in 1969 as the first great Reserve Port and since that time its famous fruity and full-bodied quality, combined with a fine dry finish, has been the benchmark for all Reserve Ports.
  • Cockburn's, one of the greatest names in Port, led the development of vineyards in Portugal's Upper Douro valley in the 19th and 20th centuries. The company is owned by the Symington family, Port producers for over 125 years.

Robert Cockburn, in outlining his philosophy so long ago would completely capture what is still our essence and objective two centuries later. "The quality of the wine - that is the first thing to be looked to."
