Wine Description

THE AGED TAWNIES reflect the art of oak ageing ; tawny port develops a rich creamy texture from the wood becoming more intense, golden amber in colour. Over times it takes on complex characteristics of walnuts, dried fruits and spices with a long peppery finish. Tasting Notes Light amber colour. Rich complex nutty bouquet reminiscent of mint and almonds. Full bodied, sweet and rich in taste with an attractive nuttiness and a lingering finish in spite of its age

    Green-edged tawny color. Ethereal, precise aromas of herbs, nutskin and apple. Thick, suave and very intensely flavored, with nutskin and apple notes as well as a suggestion of cherry. Vibrant acidity. This has lost much of its youthful sweetness without losing its freshness. Firm, rather dry finish. Full of life.
