70cl * 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. On the nose, it shows complex nutty aromas combined with hints of honey and figs. On the palate, rich mature fruit flavours, beautifully mellowed with a luscious long finished.
A perfect match to sweet pastries, such as apple pie with cinnamon or a classic cheeseboard. To be enjoyed slightly chilled. Once open, enjoy within 4-6 weeks.
