20 Year Old Tawny

Porto

The 20 Year Old Tawny comes 100% from estate-grown grapes, again a vineyard-based approach that is rare in the region. It shows increasing characteristics of nuts, dried fruits and spices, as well as increasing complexity. Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca are the major grape varieties in the blend, all trodden by foot in the lagares at Quinta do Noval, a traditional, costly and rare approach. As with the 10 Year Old, aging is in old oak barrels of 640 liters. The wine displays classic Tawny color, with golden highlights, and an ethereal bouquet. Elegant, velvety and concentrated on the palate, it has an attractive, lingering finish.
