ColourDeep Amber Brown
AromaIntense oak aged nutty flavours and vanilla oak characters showing the refinement of a true barrel aged tawny port.
PalateIncredible rich liqueur raisin characters distinctive of a Christmas fruit cake. With an exceptional round mid palate and fine tannins, with a lusciousness that lingers on and on long after consumption.
Growing ConditionsNon-vintage
Vinification/MaturationThe fruit for this Aged Tawny was harvested in late March at about 14ø Baume. The juice was fermented on skins to extract colour and fine tannins. During this process a neutral grape spirit was added, partially fortifying the juice to add greater flavour integration and complexity. Once the wine was fortified it was placed in small old barrels to mature within the solera system. The blend components are a mixture of the solera barrels from youngest to oldest Tawnys, with a very small proportion of old, dry Apera to aid complexity. The base of the tawny is based from early 1990's stock, aged indeed!
