This style of Port is fully matured in seasoned oak casks each holding about 630 litres of wine. Here, over many years of ageing, the wine gradually takes on its characteristic amber ‘tawny` colour, slowly developing the complex mellow flavours and the smooth luscious palate which are the hallmarks of Tawny Port.
Taylor`s blends its magnificent 10 year old tawny from its extensive reserves of old cask aged Ports matured in the firm`s cool and tranquil cellars (known as ‘lodges`) in Oporto on Portugal’s Atlantic coast.
Taylor`s 10 Year Old Tawny is a superb example of the aged tawny style. Mellow and elegant, combining delicate wood notes with rich aromas of mature fruit, it is bottled for immediate drinking.
