Port 10 Years Old

Tawny Port is made from premium blends of wines, sourced from the best vineyards that have been aged for years in oak casks.

This art of blending, more than a technique, is steeped in centuries of old traditions passed down from one generation to another, as the “house style” of each Port wine family company.

Ready to drink, the bottle should be stored in a cool and dry place. After opening it should stay fresh for up to one month, if stored in a cool place.

The 10 years old port is a superb example of a tawny port, made from selected old wines with an average age of over 10 years.
It´s during the aging period in oak casks that the ruby color becomes red amber tawny, which gives the name to this type of port wine.

Recognized by its smoothness, velvety texture, ripened fruity aroma and dry fruit taste. At the end, you can feel balsamic shades and creamy flavors.
This 10 years old tawny makes an excellent dessert wine. It goes well with cheese, “crème brulée” or fruit tarts. In warmer months should be served very slightly chilled.
