Warre's Warrior Port: A Legacy of Richness in Every Sip 

A Storied History, A Timeless Taste

At The General Wine Company, we're proud to offer Warre's Warrior Port, a wine steeped in history and brimming with flavour.  Boasting the title of the world's oldest continuously shipped Port brand since the 1750s, Warrior embodies the enduring legacy of Warre's dedication to exceptional quality.

A Classic Crafted with Care

The name "Warrior" wasn't chosen lightly. It reflects the strength and character that defines this Port. Sourced from Warre's finest quintas (vineyards) in the Pinhão and Rio Torto valleys – the same esteemed plots that produce their acclaimed Vintage Ports – Warrior is a blend of meticulously selected reserve Ports.

Following a time-honoured method, winemaker Peter Symington handpicks particularly rich and fruity batches before they embark on a maturation journey in seasoned oak casks within Warre's lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia. This careful ageing process allows the vibrant fruit notes to meld seamlessly with the subtle complexities imparted by the oak, culminating in a Port of remarkable depth and finesse.

A Sensory Exploration: Unveiling the Depths of Warrior

Appearance:  Warrior greets the eye with a deep, alluring red colour, hinting at the richness that lies within.

Aroma:  On the nose, a captivating bouquet unfolds, bursting with aromas of ripe red fruits like plums and cherries.  These primary notes are further complemented by hints of spice, creating an enticing and well-rounded fragrance.

Palate:  The first sip of Warrior reveals a full-bodied and well-balanced wine. The intense fruit flavours echo from the aroma, supported by a smooth texture and a pleasant tannic structure.  The oak influence adds a subtle touch of complexity, without overpowering the vibrant fruit character.  The finish is long and lingering, leaving a lasting impression on the palate.

Food Pairings:  A Match Made in Heaven

Warre's Warrior Port is a versatile wine that can be enjoyed on its own or paired with a variety of foods. Here are some delectable suggestions to elevate your experience:

  • Cheese:  Warrior's rich fruit character makes it a perfect partner for strong cheeses.  Consider pairing it with a mature cheddar, a robust blue cheese, or a creamy Stilton.
  • Chocolate:  The natural sweetness of Warrior complements the richness of chocolate beautifully.  Indulge in a decadent dark chocolate dessert or pair it with a selection of chocolate truffles.
  • Dried Fruits & Nuts:  The interplay of textures and flavours between Warrior and a selection of dried fruits and nuts is simply delightful.  Almonds, walnuts, raisins, and figs are all excellent choices.
  • Desserts:  For a truly decadent treat, pair Warrior with fruit-based desserts such as a berry tart, a plum crumble, or a chocolate and almond cake.

Beyond the Bottle: The Legacy Endures
