These wines are excellent value for money. All are acceptable but there are some really stunning wines at very cheap prices. Especially the red wines.

88 pts CellarTracker - It has an intense tawny colour with brick-like tones. Its elegant and complex bouquet is characterised by flavours of ripe fruit, marmalade and nuts, with notes of vanilla, raisins and jelly. In the mouth, the balance between the richness of the grapes´ natural sugars and its tannins provide the wine with a fine structure and a delicate yet complex finish.

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. Along the years, the wines selected for this Offley Porto Tawny 10 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 selection of wines between 9 and 12 years of age, composed to maintain the consistency and character of this Offley Porto Tawny 10 Years Old.

16,5 points - Offley Barão de Forrester 10 years Port

Loaded in color, austere, notes of dry fruits and exotic woods, a style with complexity. Has very good presence in the mouth, suggestions of pound cake, alive and Rico. Very well done. Bottled 2012.

86 points - Offley Barão de Forrester 10 years Port

The wine has a dark, still-young color. Freshness brings out bright red and dried fruits as well as acidity. It's attractive, soft and fruity, a young-tasting 10-Years-Old.

85 points - Offley Barão de Forrester 10 years Port

Vibrant aromas of light toffee, prunes and coffee follow through to a medium body, with ripe fruit and a peppery finish. A bit young in style, but clean and delicious. Drink now. 9,000 cases made.
