Sourced in the traditional way, from the highest-quality individual growers in the Douro Valley, where the varying altitude and aspect of the vineyards creates the potential for a complex wine of great character. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. Single Harvest Tawny is a blend of ports from a single year which age to maturity in seasoned oak casks.
Ripened fruit, caramel, mocha and raisins. The taste is an explosion of plums, nuts, spices and vanilla, with a nice sweet finish. Long and full.
Almonds, walnuts, berry fruit, dark chocolate or blue veined cheeses.
