Crafted from Portuguese grape varietals Tinta Barocca (70%) and Touriga Nacional (30%). Hand harvested at optimum ripeness, fermented and fortified in small lagars and matured in 500-litre Portuguese oak barrels for 16 years. 3,500 bottles were produced. Residual sugar: 100g/l. Bottled at 19%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: The bouquet unfurls with walnut, roast almond, butterscotch, melange of spices, citrus, warming brandy and charred oak notes.

Palate: A lusciously smooth, mouth-watering palate of brandied fruits, fruit cake, roast nuts, butterscotch, warm spices.

Finish: Hints of citrus tantalise the taste buds long after the first sip.

Port is a geographically protected indication, meaning that to be called port it must be made in a specific region of Portugal. Thus, this is not technically a port wine, however, South African has a long tradition of producing port-styled wines in exactly the same process as is done in Portugal.
