Porto dos Santos 10-Year Tawny<< Previous wine Next wine >>
WHAT MAKES THIS WINE UNIQUE?The 10-Year Tawny Port comes from a blend of high-quality Port wines that have been aging for an average of 10 years, and that are blended to showcase the house style.
GRAPE:A field blend of red grape varieties planted on schist soils between 650 - 1970 ft (200 - 600m) above sea level from different plots in the Douro region.
PAIRING SUGGESTIONS:Pairs well with all kinds of desserts and sweet treats as well as cheeses such as Cabrales, Gorgonzola & Roquefort.
VINIFICATION AND AGING:Aged in 650L chestnut casks or pipas. The average age of the wine is 10 years.
LOCATION, SOIL, CLIMATE:The soil in which the Douro Valley vines are planted is made up of schist, a slate-like metamorphic rock. Rich in nutrients, it also has useful water retention properties. The soils of the Douro share the essential property of many great vineyard soils, the ability to allow the vines to thrive while restricting their access to water and consequently their yields. Combined with the small thick skinned berries of the traditional Port grape varieties, the dry conditions produce wines of great richness and depth.
TASTING NOTES:Tawney in color. On the nose it is complex, with citrus, coffee and dried fruit aromas. On the palate it’s creamy, fresh and enveloping, balanced. It shows notes of orange peel, prunes, coffee and milk chocolate, with some cinnamon as well.
