Graham’s The Tawny Signature Blend Port 0.75
Region: Douro, Portugal
The Tawny Signature Blend is aged between 7 and 9 years in oak casks and is the Chief Technologist’s interpretation of the meaning of an iconic blend. Ageing this youthful-styled blend softens the tannins and adds density and complexity to the flavour. De Tawny is the result of the skills and expertise of master blenders and barrel makers collected and passed down through generations to create a one-of-a-kind beverage. Each of the gates involved in the blend carries its character, originating from one of the four estates from which the grapes come. All are aged in the winery built in 1890 in Vila Nova de Gaia.
Varieties: Toriga Nacional, Toriga Francesa, Tinta Baroca, Tinta Rorish, Tinta Cao
The wine has a deep amber colour. Aromas of orange peel, cinnamon, prunes, raisins and figs unfold on the nose. Dense palate with rich intensity of ripe dark fruit flavours. Perfect combination with fruit and cream desserts, as well as almond cake and crème brûlée. Serving temperature – 12-14°C. It can keep its freshness between 4 and 6 weeks after opening the bottle.
