Tasting Notes from the Producer
Palate (without water) Deep chestnut colour at the centre surrounded by a broad amber rim. A mature, opulent plum-pudding nose, intense and powerful, with all elements in perfect harmony. Warm base notes of raisin and toffee mingle with a rich vanilla oakiness, aromas of walnut and marzipan and spicy hints of black pepper. The palate is round,concentrated and full of rich nutty, butterscotch flavour. Underpinning the smooth, dense texture is a finely-integrated acidity which provides an attractive freshness and lift into the long finish. A superb Single Harvest Tawny which delivers all the intense, mellow aromas of long ageing in oak casks while maintaining an attractive harmony and balance.

Food Matching
Food Matching It is an excellent accompaniment to many deserts. It combines well with flavors of figs, almonds and caramel. It is an excellent complement for a crème brulée or a plate of wild strawberries. It may also be appreciated on its own, at the end of the meal, with walnuts or dried fruit, and can be served cool in the summer.
Awards and/or Press Quotes
Tasting Panel Anthony Dias Blue - January/February 2018 - Score 96 ‘Tawny, brackish color; lovely, toasty rancio nose; silky and sweet with creamy, rich, and complex flavors; layered, mature, and very long; the fifth in a limitedrelease series.’
Wine Enthusiast Roger Voss - December 2017 – 95 Points Is beautifully poised between red fruits and mature almond and an old gold character. It has intensity, a product of aging in wood that has just concentrated the wine. Like all ports of this type, it is ready to drink.
Wine Spectator James Molesworth – February 2018 – 98 Points Gorgeous from the get-go, with toasted sesame, green tea, walnut husk, pistachio cream and peanut toffee notes seamlessly layered atop one another, framed by a subtle singed alder hint. Everything glides with grace through the finish like a gently wafting plume of smoke off burning incense. Drink now.
