Winemaking:
It is produced by the traditional Porto Wine method. The hand-picked grapes undergo stalk-removal and crushing before fermentation, under controlled temperature, with skin maceration so as to extract the best components. The addition of wine alcohol at the ideal moment sets the balance between the wine´s body and bouquet. This moment is chosen by the winemaker following strict control of fermentation temperatures and densities, the later depending on the vine variety, maturation stage and the final sweetness required. After the harvest, the wines remain in the Douro until the following Spring, when they are taken to V.N.Gaia and enter Offley´s centuries-old lodges for ageing in oak wood casks, as required by Porto Wine traditional ageing system. Throughout the years the wines are carefully tasted and analysed by the oenology team who also makes all necessary corrections and prepares the final blend so as to keep Offley Porto Tawny´s style and character. The final blend is filtered and cold-stabilised prior to bottling.

Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão

18 points - Offley Tawny Port

Fine aromas, with fruit in the matter, an elegant wine with good austerity. In the mouth it is very especiado, creamy and with a somewhat drier but very well composed. Bottled in 2010.
