WHY DO WE LIKE THIS WINE

This outstanding old dessert wine is deep tawny in colour, with an aroma featuring dried fruits, caramel and spices with elegant brandy spirit and hints of wood aged rancio. The palate is richly flavoured featuring chocolate and caramel with fine spirit characters and persistent aftertaste of dried fruits and nutty nuances. The texture is sweet and smooth with roundness from the wood maturation and brandy spirit filling out the middle palate and providing the firm, drying finish.

WINERY INFORMATIONWinemakingThe original wines made over five decades ago were blended from old-vine varieties such as Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre and Muscadelle. Since 1985, the use of Portuguese fortified varieties Touriga, Tinta Cao and Tinta Molle have contributed added complexity to the blend, bringing finesse and elegance to this wine. The grapes are crushed and fermented on skins for several days to extract the fruit flavours and to build palate texture. After draining and pressing of skins, the fermentation is arrested by fortification with brandy spirit, which also adds complexity and enhances the depth of flavour. The vintage wines are then put aside into small oak barrels to mature, over time developing the classic tawny characters of chocolate, caramel and wood aged nuttiness. After many years of maturation, a selection of older and younger wines are judiciously blended to produce wines of complexity, yet with the balance of fruit and aged characters. Each year the Antique Tawny base blend is reblended and freshened to perpetuate the consistency and complexity of this classic tawny style.
