Quinta da Corte 10 Year Old Tawny 75cl
A rich amber colour with pale mahogany highlights, this 10 year old Tawny immediately reveals a superb aromatic palette, starting with notes of almond, walnut, figs, dried fruits, currants and candied orange, then develops toasted, woody and turpentine notes.
In the mouth it displays the same kind of complexity, with a deep, rich, concentrated structure underpinned by a glorious acidity It develops with great vigour and integrity towards a finish of exceptional length, leaving very elegant rancio flavours on the palate.
A Quinta da Corte Port is prepared like a grand cru: it requires exacting standards, determination and know-how. Vinified in granite vats known as lagares, in keeping with the centuries-old tradition of the Douro valley, the Quinta da Corte Ports are the most perfect expression of the schist terroir of the Quinta da Corte, and tasting them provides an exceptional experience.
