Peter and Charles Symington select young wines of great style and body for setting aside and maturing in oak, over many years. During the ageing, the Ports gradually lose the full, deep red colour of their youth and take on the classic amber hue, which gives them their name.
Superb light Ports, they are delicious, drunk lightly chilled in summer.
