Dow’s Old Tawny
Ports are the ultimate expression of the wine makers and blender’s art. Only
tasters with a profound experience and knowledge of the great Ports of the
Douro can nurture these wines through many years of aging in seasoned oak casks
in the Dow’s cellars. The Dow’s blenders will select particular wines that are
set aside and destined to become these great Old Tawny Ports.
Old Tawny Ports need to be regularly tasted
throughout the many years that they lie in the cellars. The wines need to be
‘racked’ from time to time during each year. Racking is the process by which
the Dow’s team of experienced lodge men will carefully draw the wine off its
‘lees’ (the natural sediment that is formed at the bottom of the cask) and then
pour the wine back into the clean cask. During these many years of careful
attention and aging, the dark, purple and vibrant young Port mellows and ages
into the complex but delicate aged Tawny Ports, gaining a classic amber tawny
hue which gives them their name.

"loco", the Spanish for crazy, as it turns only on calm, still days.
The vineyards are located at an altitude of 500 metres above sea
level. They are dry-farmed and the clay soil is poor, meaning that
the roots of the vines grow deep into the earth in their search for
minerals and nutrients. This helps to ensure healthy, ripe, full of
flavour grapes. The Monastrell vineyards are over 18 years old,
while the Syrah vines are slightly younger, averaging around 15
The grapes were gently crushed before being fermented and
macerated on their skins for 10 days at a controlled temperature
