Description

Tasting notes
Amber in colour, with appealing greenish hints. Its bouquet is very intense and complex, with notes of caramel, mocha, nuts and tobacco leaf. This is a very well-balanced and unctuous wine that shows a delicate structure and sublime finish.

Production method
Hand-picked grapes undergo stalk-removal and crushing before fermentation, under controlled temperature, with skin maceration. The addition of wine alcohol at the ideal moment sets the balance between the wine's body and bouquet. Ageing in wooden casks in the cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia, the final blend results from a selection of wines between 25 and 40 years.

Producer notes
Offley Port represents an established heritage, but the contemporary, fruit-driven style of the brand is designed to bring Offley closer to both current and potential customers, defining Offley as THE choice of the younger, fashion-conscious consumer. The Company was founded in 1737 by Englishman William Offley, modernised, and expanded over the years and eventually purchased by Sogrape in 1997. Wines are vinified at Sogrape's modern Douro winery, Quinta da Boavista, and matured at Offley's traditional cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia.

Condition

excellent - Please note that "30 years" refers to the average age of the wine. The blender will use more than one vintage to maintain the house style therefore the year does not appear on the bottle.
