With a well-defined tawny hue with orange-like hints, its aroma is intense and complex, with notes of vanilla, cinnamon, pepper, ginger, exotic wood, cedar, plum and hazel. On the palate, its fine structure and balance between sugars and tannins stand out. the finish is delicate and lingering.
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 15 and 40 years.
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 Villa Nova de Gaia.
