30 Years Old Tawny Port
Sensory features: A 30-year-old tawny that shows great intensity and rich dried fruits and honey as well as the woody flavours from long aging in barrel. It's a very fine wine, dry in character with touches of bitter marmalade and finished with intense acidity. Like all tawnies, the wine is ready to drink.
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 Touriga Nacional, 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.
