Calem Port

Founded in 1859 by António Alves Cálem, Porto Cálem was dedicated only to exporting wine to Brazil in exchange for exotic woods. Known by many as an incurable adventurer, when he founded the company António had already decided to cross the Atlantic to export to Brazil, rather than the route most shippers took to Britain or the rest of Europe. Having used their own fleet for these trans-Atlantic exports, their history is still remembered today through the Porto Cálem logo – a proud Caravel. Since then the firm has passed through four generations of the Cálem family, developing recognition for the quality of their wines in Portugal and around the world. In the process, the brand has accumulated numerous awards for the elegance and character of their ports.

Today, Cálem is owned by the Sogevinus group and has a wonderful back catalogue of aged Tawny ports. Their grapes come from the stunning Quinta do Arnozelo in the Douro Superior, an area with an excellent micro-climate and schistose soil perfect for the creation of beautiful ports.

Calem Port, 2011

Vintage Port Single Bottle in individual presentation box as illustrated

*** 93-95 Points Robert Parker ***
*** 92 Points Wine Spectator ***

With exceptional 92 points, 2011 Cálem Vintage Port is a wine that, according to Kim Marcus, of Wine Spectator, reveals flavours of "black plums, blackberries and cherries" that "vibrate on the palate" with intense notes of "dark chocolate and spices." This Vintage Port suggests a "powerful control", the result of nobles and "structured tannins", extending the finish. According to Kim Marcus, this is a Vintage Port that follows the "traditional style of wines that need time," and recommends drinking it ideally after 2018.

Calem Port, 1965

Single Harvest Colheita Port (Includes Calem Presentation Box)

The 1965 Calem colheita has a bright brown-tawny colour. Open and willful nose, plenty with dried fruit aromas and delicate notes of wood and honey. In the mouth, the feeling of elegance is enhanced by a beautiful structure of tannins, a silky texture, standing-out the balanced acidity which offers joy and liveliness until the end.


Colheita, or single harvest ports, are aged in the barrel. Contrast this with vintage ports which are aged in the bottle and only have a short drinking window after opening. Colheita ports have had air working on them through the cask during all the years of aging, giving them a open-life of a month or longer.
