Winemaker Notes

This 5 year Tawny style dessert wine was crafted from five traditional Douro grapes grown on our estate. Five years in neutral oak fostered development of figs, caramel, dates, and hazelnuts. Fine grained tannins create a delicate texture which can be enjoyed with chocolates, pecan pie, or a fine cigar.

Note:  This comes in a 500 ml bottle.
