|Vineyard Region:||South Eastern Australia|
|Wine Analysis:||Alc/Vol: 18%|
|Colour:||Our Australian Tawny shows the classic caramel treacle colour of a tawny style.|
|Aroma:||Delicious aromas of spicy fruit cake and raisins are immediate on the nose.|
|Palate:||On the palate, this fortified is luscious and intense with caramel and aged rancio flavours – a direct result of blending mature and younger wines.|
Recommended food pairings: Tawny is the traditional after-dinner wine with coffee but would also be well suited to a flourless chocolate cake with double cream. This wine is also perfect on its own in front of an open fire!
Growing Conditions: Australian Tawny is a complex blend of young, fresh fortified with older, softer material. The richness of Shiraz and the softness of Grenache together with smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, Mataro and other varieties, combine together in the Soleras to produce this ‘tawny’ style.
Winemaker: Geoff Alexander
Winemaking notes: The wood maturation of this wine enhances the developed qualities of richness and intensity. This port shows sweetness balanced by the drying sensations derived from extended ageing in oak barrels and a lengthy and lingering spice. Bottled from the solera as required, this bottling has an acid level of 5.2 g/l, a pH of 3.86 and an alcohol of 18.0% by volume.
