Delight fans of Port with this Reserve Tawny, in a traditional 'chestnut' bottle based on designs from the 1770s.
The subtle and delicate bouquet, suggests notes of hazelnut on the nose, yet with light reminders of yeast but smooth on the palate giving a fresh finish.
The nose is more delicate than many a Tokaji, with aromas of ripe peach, exotic fruit and blossom. Moderate palate weight, with a fine balance of intense sweetness and acidic lift.
A beautifully concentrated Port with lush aromas of violets and black fruit flavours redolent of figs, plums and spice. The full flavour really comes through on a palate of ripe cherries and plums.
Aromas of raisins, molasses, figs, toffee, caramel, nuts, the palate is incredibly thick, dense, massive concentration and unsurpassed sweetness and prolonged length.
A medium amber colour with a nose of orange peel, figs and cinnamon. The sugar on the palate is well-balanced by the fine acidity, leading to a clean, refreshing finish. Great with poached pears.
A deep and youthful ruby colour, with an intense, fruity nose crammed with blackberry, cassis, cherry and plum aromas. The palate full-bodied and round, with a luscious, velvety texture.
An intense nose of apple skins and nuts leads on to a palate characterised by classic notes of almonds, orange peel and a salty twang. Should be served chilled as a stunning apéritif.
The 2009 Castelnau de Suduiraut is a hugely intense experience, with immense, honeyed sweetness counterbalanced by an involving complexity. Great with poached pears.
