Tasting Notes

Tawny port just doesn't get better than this one from Quinta do Infantado. Excellent body and richness, with notes of roasted hazelnuts and sultanas followed by just a hint of sweetness. Simply delicious.

Excellently priced fine Tawny

I have in the past been a bit of a Port snob and always overlooked Tawny Ports, opting instead for Vintage or LBV's. So when I tasted this I was surprised to enjoy it quite so much. It was lovely, a nose full of nuttiness and caramel and on the palate a sublime vanilla, coffee and raisin with a delightful hint of a spicy finish. This flavor profile is different then you would get from a Ruby style and that comes from aging in small oak or chestnut "toneis" slightly smaller than the barrique. The oxidative process that happens in the cask creates the unique Tawny flavor. This is a super wine at an equally super price point, and I know it will not disappoint. Cheers, Stephen W.

They also show their terroir quite clearly, and represent a great alternative to the modern fruit-driven...
