We love the balance of this barrel-aged port with flavours of dried fruit and cinnamon.
Pair this wine with richly flavored cheeses (including blue cheese), chocolate and caramel desserts, salted and smoked nuts, and even sweet-smoky meats.
Port wines, also known as Porto, are sweet, fortified wines from Portugal produced exclusively in the Douro Valley, often served as a dessert wine, often with cheese, nuts or chocolate; white and aged style Tawny ports are often served as aperitif. Port wine is typically richer, sweeter, heavier, and higher in alcohol content than unfortified wines.
Tawny ports are very sweet barrel-aged port wines with oxidative nut and caramel flavors. This Tawny port is very balanced with flavours of dried fruit, cinnamon and a certain floral note.
Well defined aromas of wood, resulting from ageing in very old oak.
