The Tawny 20 Years Old of Taylor's Port from the Portuguese wine region DOC Douro is vinified from the Tinta Amarela, Tinta Cao, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barocca, Touriga Francesa and Touriga Nacional grape varieties.
This port appears after two decades of expansion in oak barrels with a glossy amber color in the glass. Complex and complex, the bouquet reveals intense aromas of roast apple, roasted almonds, cinnamon and honey, creating a Christmas atmosphere. On the palate, this port impresses with freshness, fruity acidity and gentle, perfectly integrated tannins. The balanced, soft taste convinces with juicy, delicate aromas and a long finish.
Vinification of Taylor's Port Tawny 20 Years old
Aged Tawny primarily demands the art of blending and wise foresight of the development of wine during its long ageing in barrels. Because every Tawny is composed from the beginning for its specific age: 10, 20, 30 or 40 years and must always have its characteristic style and taste. Even if this port is composed of always different wines and vintages.
The grapes for this wine are harvested exclusively by hand and brought to the wine cellar of Taylor's Port, destemmed there and fermented in open stainless steel tanks. As soon as half of the sugar has been fermented, the fermentation process is stopped by the addition of high-percentage distillate. This preserves this wine's natural residual sweetness. Finally, this port wine matures for 20 years in wooden barrels until it is filled onto the bottle.
Food recommendation for the Taylor's Tawny 20 Years
Enjoy this port with all kinds of sweet desserts with honey, nuts and almonds, chocolate cakes or with matured hard cheeses and blue cheese.
