Quinta De La Rosa Tawny Port 20 Year Old - Portugal (500ml)
The beautiful golden colour is a good indication of the age of this excellent tawny port. With a great richness and aromatic complexity, notably of almond and spices, the 20 year old has a seductive texture with dry fruits and liqueur flavours. As is normal with these aged tawnies, the La Rosa twenty year old has incredible length and is an ‘aristocrat’ of ports.
GRAPE VARIETIES: Traditional port varieties, mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz, from the older dry stone terraced vineyards at La Rosa.
PRODUCTION NOTES: The 20 Year Tawny is a blend of ports with an average age of twenty years. Every year the grapes are picked by hand at the end of September/October and trodden by foot in granite lagares. Each year the winegrower keeps back some of the best quality port and uses this to make up the 10 and 20 year old tawny blends.
