Delaforce 20 Years Old Tawny - DOC DOURO
Over 30 classic Douro grape varieties can be used to make port but only a handful of the best are planted in the Delaforce vineyards, each contributing its unique character and flavour to the blend. These include the Touriga Francesa, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz. The grapes are selected and harvested by hand in mid September and, the case of the Delaforce vineyards, are placed in small trays which keep them in perfect condition during transport to the winery.
Intense aromas of burnt coffee, cherry and caramel follow through to a full-bodied palate, with a sweet treacle tart aftertaste. This should be delicious with chocolate.
