Description

The nuttiest of the ports; sounds mad but tastes utterly delicious.

Rich fruit cake aromas, dark spicy fruit flavours with lovely jammy sweetness and soft, ripe tannins. This organic Tawny Port is surprisingly full-bodied, and dark in colour, which is a little unusual, as most are lighter (hence the name Tawny) as they are aged in small casks for several years only, making them really good value. Youthful and exuberant in style, it can be enjoyed now, without ageing, and will not throw a sediment. We suggest drinking with dessert, maybe something chocolatey. Cheese of course, is another classic alternative. Can also be appreciated lightly chilled to calm the alcohol feel down a little and lift drinkability. We are hoping (with time) this rare organic Port estate may be able to release a 10 or 20-year-old organic Tawny in the future!

Arlindo da Costa Pinto e Cruz’s vineyards are planted on schistous, split terraces on the steep slopes of the Douro. Amongst the vines you will see olive trees growing alongside touriga nacional, touriga francesa, tinta roriz and tinta barroca – the grape varieties that are blended together to make his much-loved and multi-award-winning ports.

    I bought this for cooking, but ended up drinking most of the bottle. Irresistible!
