The Port is made each year in the traditional manner, trodden in granite lagares from grapes grown at Quinta de la Rosa. Each year we keep back a small quantity of our best ports LBV quality and above. It is from these stocks that we blend our Tawny. This blending occurs on a regular basis to ensure that stocks are always fresh.
AGEING: The port is stored in small (550 liter) oak casks or “pipes” and it is from this selection of fine old ports that we blend our Tawny. Unlike most port shippers, all products are stored and bottled in the Douro (at La Rosa and not Porto), allowing full traceability and ensuring quality from grape to bottle. Sales of this very popular port sometimes have to be limited if demands exceeds supply
GRAPE VARIETIES: Traditional port varieties, mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz.
REGION: Douro, Portugal
TECHNICAL NOTES: Alcohol 20% | PH 3..5 RS: 99.5g/l
It is a rich and elegant blend with wonderful aromas exuding the heat of the Douro. On the palate it is complex with powerful dried fruit, figs, honey and almonds with a long pleasing finish and a touch of mandarin. It should be consumed within 2 to 3 years of bottling.
