Tawny Port is slightly drier in taste than Ruby, browner in colour, is aged longer, and draws its character from more exposure to oak.
Often made from lighter grapes than Ruby or ‘Vintage’ Ports, a basic Tawny Port is aged in stainless-steel and wood for a minimum of 3 years, but still retains some rich, aromatic and balanced sweetness. As a ‘young’ Port it can be drunk chilled as an aperitif.
Attractive red-tawny colour; rich and delicate nose, dominated by the intense presence of dried fruits and vanilla notes with a well-balanced palate and finish.
Grape(s): Tinta Roriz, Touriga Francesa, Touriga Nacional
