Fonseca - Tawny

Fonseca - Tawny

Port

This Tawny spent 3 years ageing in small wooden casks in cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. As tawny ports age, they grow lighter in color, as they throw their deposit in the cask rather than in the bottle. This contributes to the oxidation process whereby the wine's fruit qualities gradually diminish and its nutty characteristics are acquired. After the 3 years of ageing the wines are then blended together a few months before bottling for balance and harmony.

Graham's - Tawny 20 Y

Graham's - Tawny 20 Y

When William and John Graham started making Port in 1820, they immediately opted for a high-quality standard. Today, the Symington family, which took over Graham took in 1970, still has that philosophy. Graham is the only remaining Porthouse that is still in the hands of one family. The Tawny has matured for at least 20 years and perfectly shows the balance in maturation. This 20-year-old stands beautifully between younger and old Port.

Calem - Vintage 1985

Calem - Vintage 1985

Portugal

Cálem Porto was founded in 1859 by António Alves Cálem. He had only one goal; to make the best Port there is. Vintage Port matures for about 3 years on oak wood and then goes into the bottle unfiltered. Then the ripening begins, which for vintage Port can take a very long time. Not every harvest year is suitable for Vintage Port. The Portuguese Port Institute has to approve of the wine. On average, this happens every 3 years.

Kopke - Colheita 1981

Kopke - Colheita 1981

Portugal

Kopke specializes in old Colheita Port. This Port of 1981 is carefully crafted from grapes, harvested in 1981. The big difference between a Colheita and a Vintage Port from 1981, is that the Colheita has been in its barrel for almost 35 years, while the Vintage has already been in the bottle after a few years. An old Colheita has no bottle ripening and can be drunk whenever you want. With a Vintage, long storage is worthwhile.
