Grant Burge Aged Tawny Port NV 750ML


Grant Burge Aged Tawny Port NV 750ML

Golden tawny with red tinges. The spicy fruit flavours are a legacy of the high proportion of Grenache and add a lifted freshness to the more complex aged characters in the background. The palate is smooth and rich, with the mid-palate sweetness balanced by an elegant drying finish.

This fine-aged tawny is made from the Barossa's traditional tawny varieties - mostly Grenache, with some Mataro and Shiraz, and has been blended to an average age of a six-year-old wine.

After harvest and crushing, fermentation is initiated in traditional open fermenters. Fermentation is stopped at the desired sweetness by the addition of a high-quality brandy spirit. After pressing and clarification, the wine is matured in older barriques and hogsheads, allowing it to slowly develop harmony and complexity without adding obvious oak character. A limited quantity of Aged Tawny is drawn for bottling each year and the barrels are topped up with selected younger wine.

Alc: 18%
