Classic tawny colour with streaks of amber. An array of aromas are on display with dark raisined fruits, mocha, hints of vanillin oak and nutty aged barrel characters. Initially luscious, nuances of mocha and coffee have integrated over time, barrel aged flavours in harmony resulting in a smooth, lingering drying finish.
General Characteristics Sweet / Medium bodied.
Suggested Cuisine Tawnys are a traditional after dinner wine that can be savoured with a platter of cheeses or a rich fruit or chocolate dessert.
Wine making: Fruit is allowed to stay on the vine until very sweet and an intense concentration of flavours has developed. After crushing and partial fermentation to retain some sweetness, the wine is pressed and then fortified with a neutral spirit prior to maturation in small and large format oak casks.
Cellaring: With an average age of 21 years,
Old Boys Barrel Aged Tawny can be
cellared for extended maturation in
bottle but is blended to be enjoyed
on opening at any time.
