Reserve Tawny Porto

Region: Portugal / Douro Valley Porto
Grapes: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Amarela

Croft Reserve Tawny Porto is an exciting new concept in Port Wine, combining the rich character of an aged tawny with ready-to-drink smoothness and spice. Reserve Tawny Porto is sourced in the traditional way: from the highest-quality individual growers in the Douro Valley, where the varying altitude and aspect of the vineyards creates the potential for a complex wine of great character. Drawn from a reserve of fine wood ports which have been aged an average of seven years in seasoned oak casks, the individual wines are then blended to guarantee consistency and quality. The result is a complex yet accessible tawny port that is perfect with dessert but that can be enjoyed at any time.
