Churchill's 10 Year Old Tawny Port

Churchill’s 10 Year Old Tawny starts its life as a young Vintage Port. It is partly aged in large oak vats before finishing its maturation in traditional port pipes. Although fully aged in wood, it retains the freshness of youth, which is reflected in its darker brick red colour and lively finish. Made from a field blend of many varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Franca and Tinta Francisca is a rich brick red in colour with flashes of amber. Elegant and subtle, complex on the nose, with expressive notes of dry fruits combined with hints of orange peel, full on the mouth, this wine shows an excellent vinosity and freshness, allowing it to finish long and persistent. This 10 Year Old Tawny Port is filtered, does not need decanting and is ready to drink now. Once opened it will keep well for up to one month. Churchill’s 10 Year Old Tawny Port combines particularly well with soft cheeses like Brie and Camembert and Fruit cake.
