Douro is an appellation in northern Portugal that is famous for being the home of Port. Founded in 1981 by John Graham, Churchill’s was the first British Port wine company to have been established in over 50 years. Churchill’s Port grew from John Graham’s desire to continue his family’s Port making tradition by setting up a company to produce his own, individual style of wine. It was his wife, Caroline Churchill (yes, a grand-daughter of Winston), who provided the company with its name. 
The name 'Meio Queijo' which means half the cheese and is named after the shape of the vineyard. A blend of 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca, 30% Tinta Roriz.
4 Stars & 17.5/20 Raymond Chan, November 2016 (2013 Vintage)
"Dark, deep, black-hued purple-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is moderately concentrated with aromas of ripe black-berried fruits entwined with rustic notes of earth and dark herbs, revealing fragrant blackcurrant and spice detail. Medium-bodied, the palate has up-front, juicy and succulent flavours of black-berried fruit entwined with herb and stalk notes, currants, earth and minerals. The fruit is supported by supple tannin extraction, and the acidity is soft and ripe. The mouthfeel is balanced and follows a soft, textural line, leading to a dry, lingering finish of black fruits, herbs and rustic earthy elements. This is an up-front, sweet-fruited Douro red with black-berried fruits, herb and earthy flavours on a soft, supple palate. Match with game meat dishes and semi-hard cheeses over the next 4+ years. 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% each Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz from the company’s ‘A’ plantings, fermented to 13.0% alc., 20% of the wine aged in seasoned oak."
