Fermentation starts automatically after a few hours and continues for 24-36 hours until stopped by the addition of grape brandy. The fortified wine is then transferred to barrel for clarification and ageing.

Tawny Port can also be produced as a 10 year old, 20 year old, 30 year old or 40 year old wine.
