40 Year Old Tawny Port

The 40 year old Port combines the talent of 3 generations. João, Oscar Sr. and Cláudia combined their effort in the cellar to blend this balanced, intense and complex very old Tawny, pairing the concentration from Port wine aging in the Douro with the elegant style of Quevedo’s Tawny.

TASTING NOTES

Colour

Amber with green hints

AROMA

A complex and intense expression with notes of citrus marmalade, dry fruits, nutmeg, marzipan and almond essence.

PALATE

Sharp entrance due to the high acidity built through all the years of evaporation in the casks. Quickly the Port becomes very smooth, balanced by its sweetness and the appereance of the dry fruits, grilled nuts and caramel flavors. From the midpalate, it evolves to cloves, ground coffee, and bitter almonds. The many layers of flavours build towards an explosive finish, taken over by the citrus, cinnamon and ginger notes that linger persistently.

Produced from a field blend of old vines, this Port is a classic of its kind. It has an old-gold character, with concentration from aging in wood for nearly 40 years. Spice and acidity are balanced by the heady perfumes of this wine. Drink now.

The NV 40 Year Old Tawny Port, bottled in 2015, is a field blend with 135 grams per liter of residual sugar. Very fresh, very elegant and relatively young for a 40, this is only moderate in complexity for its age, a little light on those molasses overtones, if you will. However, the youth and nutty nuances are rather glorious in their own right. Alive and delicious, it has an enticingly sweet edge. There are approximately 1,000 bottles produced per year.
