Product description

This superb example of aged tawny Porto is made from selected grapes from the best vineyards of the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. Taylor Fladgate is an area leader in winemaking technology, as one of only three Porto producers to pioneer the development of piston fermenter techniques, called Port Toes, that extract significantly greater flavor and aroma than conventional pump-over fermentation. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. Individual wines produced in different vintages are aged in 600-liter oak casks for years, over which time they will lose their young, dark purple-black color to gain the distinctive “tawny” hue from which the wine takes its name. As tawnies age, the wines take on increasingly more nutty flavors and become more concentrated as the barrels lose 3% of their volume every year (the “Angels’ Share”) to evaporation. The 30 Year Old Tawny is a blend created using tawnies with an average of 30 years of aging.

FAQs

Port wine is a strong Portuguese fortified wine that has been produced since 1678. Because of its rich flavor and sweet taste, it is most often savored as a dessert wine. It is bottled and aged in the Douro region of Portugal.
As a well known dessert wine, port is traditionally enjoyed at the end of a meal, typically with a cheese plate and dried fruits as an accompaniment. It is claimed that a glass of port before bedtime will aid in sleep.
The two main styles of port wine are named after their coloring. Ruby ports have more of a fruity flavor and a reddish ruby color while tawny ports tend to be light brown with a nutty, caramel flavor. The production process is the same, but ruby ports are aged in large oak casks and tawny ports are aged in small oak barrels.
Port wine is named for Oporto, a town in the Douro region of northern Portugal where it is bottled and aged. The wine was originally known as Oporto wine and eventually just shortened to port.
