Tasting Notes

The wines in the blend for this superb old Tawny Porto, were issued from a long list of different grape varieties and locations along the Douro valley, patiently matured for an average of 10 years in seasoned oak casks. This allowed them to soften their tannins, acquire a more mellow texture, and allow for dried fruits such as peaches, hazelnut and almonds, blended with notes of quince appear. This Vale D. Maria 10 Year Old Tawny Porto is a wine with great freshness, allowing the wine to be pleasurable company with either desserts such as crème brulée, passion fruit tart, apple pie… or just simply in your own company.
