      Tasting Notes
      Quinta De La Rosa 10 Year Old Tawny Port 50cls

      All our ports are made in the ‘house style’ namely slightly drier without any cloying sweetness that can be associated with some other ports. We also work hard making sure the brandy is well integrated. As with our wines, we search for harmony and equilibrium from our vineyards and we try to enable the grapes to express themselves in the bottle. The La Rosa style is to make well defined wines without too much extraction and tannin. Tawny Ports, by their nature are slightly oxidized in style, this means they can be kept open longer than Vintage ports. This Port can be left open for a few weeks when stored in a cool place with a vacuvin or cork.

      Delicate soft and creamy this is a rich and elegant blend with wonderful aromas exuding the heat of the Douro. On the palate it is complex with powerful dried fruit figs honey and almonds with a long pleasing finish. It should be consumed within 2 to 3 years of bottling.

      Served chilled as an aperitif or to accompany fois gras or maybe with that special dessert or cheese. Best of all serve Tonel 12 on its own and savour the complexity and extraordinary flavours of such a wonderful port. This Port has been lightly filtered and does not require decanting

      "Tight acidity and a smoky, burnt character give this complex wine considerable intensity. It has a a dry character, full of flavors from its wood aging with an almost medicinal intensity. 89 Points." (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Jan 2014)
