This Port is orange-red in color with a touch of green. It has a well-rounded, generous aroma and the wine’s fruit aromas include orange, apricot and plum. Vanilla and old Port wine casks make up its woody aromas. This is a fruity tawny variety. In the mouth, one can still taste the fresh fruit surrounded by the ageing in wood. There is good structure and perfect balance between fruit and alcohol. The attack on the palate is smooth and full-bodied. Following the initial oily feel, a fresh, soft fruitiness appears that finishes with a slightly acidic, woody note.

This Port pairs well with conch salad with tomato and onion, and with desserts made with dried fruit and nuts, orange marmalade and eggs. Serve between 14o and 18o C. Store the bottle upright, in a cool, dry and dark place.
