Fortress port wine is an intricately-rendered expression of the rich port wine inside the bottle. This foil-and-raised-ink port wine label feature tightly detailed elements add interest and whimsy, like the copper still, wrought iron scrollwork detailing and miniature corkscrews.

The port wine label printing is enhanced with copper foil stamping throughout, with raised gloss white lettering, offset by an inky blue matte wine label surface.

The top of the port wine bottle is finished with a copper foil stamped paper band which covers over a wax-sealed cork.

This limited-edition small run port sold out to collectors within a few months of release.
