How is tawny port made?


Tawny Port begins its life as red port that has been selected for laying down in oak casks for extended aging - years of gentle oxidation in the wood turns the red port a lighter brown colour known as tawny.  Aging of between 10 and 40 years produces tawny ports characterised by their smoothness and the aroma and taste of spice, dried fruit and nuttiness.

Drinking tawny port


Tawny ports can be drunk after dinner with cheese and dessert or, if served slightly chilled, they make a superb aperitif wine. Tawny Ports do not need decanting and once open tawny port will keep for 3-4 weeks when you keep the stopper cork in & store it in the fridge.

Food & tawny port


Try tawny ports as an aperitif with salted mixed nuts, olives or canapes.  After dinner try it with dessert and coffee - sticky toffee pudding full of dates makes good company for tawny port.
