Rated as outstanding by Wine Spectator and receiving the International Wine Challenge gold award, this amazing 40-Year Tawny Port is now available again in the UK through VWP!
Named after the first established English Port wine shipper in Oporto, Walter Maynard, this aged Port has been stored in a barrel for over 40 years until it was bottled for us. Presented in its own gift box, this is a powerful port with complex nuttiness aromas in harmony with spicy notes, warm roasted coffee and cinnamon hints from the long contact with oak wood during the ageing process.
On the palate, an array of flavours flourishes, mainly to toasted nuts and chocolate. The 40 Year-old is an intense and complex port with a mellow and spicy aftertaste.
New - Bottled 2018/2019
90 Points Decanter
"40 year old tawny is always lovely to drink, as the constituent wines have spent so long in oak barrels that the water content has partially evaporated, concentrating the flavours. This has developed a lovely intense palate with flavours of caramelised nuts and burnt orange rind. There is a high level of acidity which cuts through the richness. Absolutely delicious and good value for the style."
