DRINK ME 10 YEARS OLD TAWNY

This beautifully almost apothecary’s bottle along with its appealing name – DRINK ME – matches perfectly with the subtle, mellow and refined content.

Tawnies with an age indication such as "10 years" are blended from different wines, with an average of 10years. The prolonged ageing in small wooden casks confers the characteristic tawny colour. The principle features of an aged tawny are the complexity of aromas, the freshness and refined persistent bouquet.

After dinner, this tawny is a good match with cheeses and chocolate based desserts. It can also be drunk as an aperitif, served at room temperature or slightly chilled.

VINIFICATION

The grapes coming from low yielding vineyards in the Cima Corgo region of the Douro Valley, are predominantly trodden in lagares, prior to ageing in small old oak casks at the cellars in Vila Nova deGaia. Tawnies age in 550 l old casks, over many years. The balanced blend of the different characteristics and ages is the art of the Niepoort master blender José Nogueira, direct descendant of Niepoort’s original cellar master.

TASTING NOTES

Tawny in colour, with aromas of dried apricots and crystallized tangerine peel well integrated with a nutty character.
