20 Years Old Tawny Port Price € 41.30
Sensory features: Deeper, brandied nuts on nose; riper, rainforest timber and roasted almond. The palate is extraordinarily fine with wonderful interplay between ridiculously fine aged spirit and oak. Entry sweetness is now peanut brittle, grilled bread, panforte. Clean and outrageously long finish. The clean drying grip of fruit tannins and barrel perfectly frame the wine’s stunning elegance of dry fruits, spice, honey and clove down the back half.
Port is a fortified wine made primary from Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, and Tinto Cão (plus around 75 other indigenous grapes) that are hand-picked from the wineries Estate vineyards. Port wines are intended to be sweet, so fermentation is arrested half way through the process, before all the residual sugar has been fermented. Fermentation is halted through the addition of grape spirits, thus fortifying the wine. The wine is aged in 600 litre oak casks for years during which time the complex aromas and flavours become thoroughly integrated and the distinct hue develops.
Grape Varieties : Mixture of various varieties - Old Vines of Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela & Tinta.Franca.
Maturation: The wine is aged for many years in very old 600 litre oak casks and other oak vats.
