|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.
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
