3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Late Bottled means bottled after 4, rather than 2 years in wood. Our LBV is a rich, concentrated port from one good harvest, which has been aged for 4 years in wood. The word "traditional” means that it is bottled without any filtration or refrigeration so that the wine can continue developing in the bottle before it is released for sale, two years later. At the end of the bottle ageing period, it is ready for immediate drinking. or alternatively, and this is purely optional, it can be cellared for a few more years to acquire one of the more pronounced characteristics of Vintage Port, which is a "bottle nose” - at which stage it may have formed a sediment and require to be decanted.

Medium-bodied and medium sweet, with a fresh fruit aftertaste. Delicious. Drink now." – James Suckling – Wine Spectator
