Vieira de Sousa Fine Tawny Port (NV)

Product Description

From the Importer: The Fine Tawny Port is a wonderful delicious example of the ‘Tawny Style’ in the region, from the Vieira de Sousa estate.  The aging is done in large old vats (tonel) to encourage an oxidative environment for this deliciously nutty Port.  This is a very traditional blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa (Franca), Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz, where the hand-harvested fruit was brought into the cellar for a foot-treading press in old granite lagares.  It ferments in lagares until it reaches the desired Baumé, which is the measure of sugar that gives the potential alcohol point for Port (in this case 3.3).  It was then fortified with Brandy to keep the sugar level and fruit flavor vivid and rich, and then put into oak vats for aging for many years.  The final tawny offers a rich palate that is very balanced and elegant, with nuts and caramel notes, dates and figs, and a long expressive finish.
