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. 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. Along the years, the outstanding wines selected for this Offley Porto Tawny 20 Years Old are carefully tasted and analysed, racked from lees and all corrections deemed necessary by the tasters are carried out. The final blend results from a strict selection of wines aged between 15 and 40 years, masterfully combined so as to maintain Offley Porto Tawny´s 20 Years Old unique identity, style and consistency.

It has a well-defined tawny hue with orange-like hints. Its aroma is intense and complex, with notes of vanilla, cinnamon, pepper, ginger, exotic wood, varnish, cedar, plum and hazelnut, the result of its careful evolution along many years. In the mouth, its fine structure and the balance between sugars and tannins stand out. The finish is delicate and lingering, with good harmony of retro-nasal flavours, the Offley brand´s unmistakeable style.
