Royal Oporto Tawny Porto Aged 10 Years . 2 Glass Gift Set 2010

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

This is the best tawny I have ever had from Royal Oporto. Well done. Well-aged with almond, fruitcake and caramel aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, sweet and lively, with orange peel, nuts and dried fruits on the finish.

Grape growing in the Douro Region dates back to pre-historic times. In Bronze Age burying-grounds, grape seeds and even carbonised vine-shoots have been found. With the Roman occupation, grape-growing underwent a large scale expansion-excavations carried out on the left bank of the River Tua cleary confirm the development and prosperity that the vine brought to the Douro Region. The first known written reference to the name "Port Wine" applied to the Douro wine exported from the Oporto customs house dates from the end of 1678. Between 1680 and 1715, the expansion and growth of exports was remarkable, having increased from 800 to 8.000 barrels and reaching the expressive figure of 19.000 barrels in 1749. A great contribution to this increase was made by the mercantile spirit revealed by English merchants of the period settled in the city of Oporto. Read less

While it is quite dark in color, this wine still has plenty of good, 10-Year Old fresh fruit flavors. Perfumed and delicate, it has light sweetness and a good layer of fruit and wood acidity, leaving a dry aftertaste. Its quality is an indication of the impressive improvements that have occurred at Royal Oporto in recent years.
