Vinification Details

Traditional techniques are used with vinification of the grapes taking place over 2-3 days. Fementation starts automatically after a few hours and continues for 24 to 36 hours until stopped by addition of grape brandy. The fortified wine is then transferred to barrel for clarification and ageing.

History

This wine is produced on behalf of Tesco by the Symington Family who have been making Port in the Douro valley for over 125 years. Tanwy Port is an barrel aged style of Port that is created ageing red Port in large oak barrels in for many years. This particular wine is about 6 to 7 years old when bottled. Tawny Port can be produced as a 10 year old, 20 Year old, 30 year old or 40 year old wine.

Regional Information

Douro is a Portuguese wine region centered around the Douro River in the Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro region. It is sometimes referred to as the Alto Douro (upper Douro), as it is located some distance upstream from Porto, sheltered by mountain ranges from coastal influence. It is very hot during the summer reaching temperature in excess of 40 degrees celcius in the summer perfect for the indigenious grape varieties of this region. The region has Portugal's highest wine classification as a Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC). While the region is associated primarily with Port wine production (fortified wine), the Douro also produces table wine (non-fortified wines).
