Touriga Blend * 75cl * 20% ABV * Douro, Portugal
Tawny Ports are aged in wooden casks as opposed to Vintage Ports that are aged in bottle. Once a port has been in an oak cask for six years it takes on a tawny colour and the tannins soften, giving the wine a smooth mouth-feel without losing too many of the rich raisiny fruit flavours. This is light amber, with a magnificent nose of fig, raisings, dates and dried plums. Mellow and a very long finish.
