Ten Year Old tawnies are ten year old style blends of wines of the highest quality that have spent an average of ten years ageing in oak casks, until they reach the perfect level of maturity. They are, then, bottled ready to be enjoyed. Cockburn’s 10 Year Old Tawny is pale and delicate with hints of walnuts and almond. Perfect served lightly chilled to enjoy with good friends.
Cockburn’s 10 Year Old Tawny has a bright tawny red colour. On the nose lively candied fruit aromas, combine with toffee, caramel and honey. On the palate beautifully rounded, with delicious mature dried fruits and hints of walnuts and almonds, exquisitely mellow and a long luscious finish.
