Warre's Otima 20 Year Old Tawny Port (500 ml)
About this item
- Appellation: Douro Valley, Portugal
- Blend of Port varietals
- Alcohol: 20%
OTIMA 20 Years is rich and delicate, but never cloying. The translucent copper colored tone of the wine is matched by the beautiful soft nutty aromas gained by a full twenty years ageing in seasoned oak casks. The tannins and acidity ensure balance and perfect length, owing to a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cão varietals.
Warre’s OTIMA 20 Year Old undergoes fermentation with natural yeast at between 24 to 28ºC. Once the must has fermented to the desired degree of sweetness (usually within 48 hours), fortification takes place with grape brandy at 77% v/v (generally 80% must / 20% brandy).
Food pairing suggestion and serving: Does not need decanting. The wine is ready to drink when bottled, but will maintain its quality in bottle. Serve lightly chilled in warmer climates, with light desserts such as crème brûlée, or on its own. OTIMA 20 is a pleasure to drink at any time, not just at the end of a lunch or dinner.
