Churchill's Crusted Port is even closer in style to Vintage Port than their traditional LBV. It presents a dense, concentrated wine for far less than the price of a Vintage Port. (19.5% ABV - 2006) Crusted Port is a style of wine that was invented by English wine merchants when port was still being shipped in bulk and blended to their specification. It ceased to exist as soon as bulk shipments were stopped. There followed almost a decade before the Portuguese authorities reinstated Crusted port as a special category. Churchill's Crusted Port is made up of the very best wines from two or sometimes three different harvests. It is kept in wood for up to two years and then bottled for further maturation. As this blend is not subject to any fining or filtration it continues to develop and mature in bottle. Given sufficient time, it throws a thick sediment, otherwise called a Crust from which it derives its name. Churchill's Crusted, bottled in 2006 and aged in bottle in their cellars for a minimum of 3 years, is a full bodied port which has acquired the rich mellowness and distinctive nose usually associated with mature Vintage Port. It can be consumed now or laid down for a few more years. The wine is sealed with a driven cork allowing it to breathe and the bottle to be stored lying down. Care needs to be taken not to disturb the crust. When the bottle is taken from the horizontal position, it is best to leave it standing upright for a period of 24 hours prior to decanting. In his tasting notes the wine maker, Johnny Graham, writes " This Port Wine has a rich garnet colour with a violet hue. Fresh resinous notes on the aroma. Complex and elegant on the palate, combining cherry flavours with dark chocolate notes in a well balanced finish."

Zavvi - The Home of Pop CultureCinderella (2015) The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new Stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Soon, she is forced to become their servant, disrespected, covered in ashes and spitefully renamed Cinderella. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her, and she continues to remain positive, determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” When Ella meets a dashing stranger in the woods, unaware that he is really the Prince (Richard Madden) and not merely Kit, an apprentice at the palace, she believes she has finally found a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the King (Derek Jacobi) summons all maidens in the kingdom to attend a royal ball at the palace, raising Ella’s hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit. Alas, her Stepmother forbids her to attend and callously destroys her dress. Meanwhile, the calculating Grand Duke (Stellan Skarsgård) devises a plan to thwart the Prince’s hopes of reuniting with Ella and enlists the support of the devious Stepmother.
