Smith Woodhouse Porto 10 Year Old Tawny 2010

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Excellent tawny colour gained through ageing in small oak barrels. The nose shows layers of mature fruit aromas, beautifully integrated with nuances of nuts and crystallized dried fruits. On the palate very smooth and mellow, with a well-balanced and long finish. - Winery

Portugal's Douro Valley is one of the most spectacular wine growing regions in the world. Its beauty is the result of many centuries of work by the river Douro itself, carving steep, towering banks into the landscape, and by the inhabitants of this region, who centuries ago undertook the nearly impossible task of planting vineyards here. Forming terraces on these rocky slopes was difficult enough, but the harsh climate and limited rainfall, characteristic of the Douro Valley, made the work of winemaking a difficult enterprise indeed. The rewards of this labor are the superb wines of the Douro, wines that have taken their place among the best in the world. Smith Woodhouse wines come from the Upper Douro, famous for its top rated production. The majority of the wines are still produced by treading the grapes by foot in stone lagares. Smith Woodhouse’s wines are largely sourced from the Madalena vineyard. This small Quinta (vineyard property) has the highest “A” quality rating and is located in the Rio Torto district, acknowledged as one of the finest Port growing areas. Over the coming years, the recently acquired Quinta do Vale Coelho, further upriver in the Douro Superior, will gradually form an important component of Smith Woodhouse’s Ports. Read less

Medium sweet, with a pretty aroma of toffee that leads to flavors of apricot, vanilla and spice. Supple and suave on the finish, with plenty of white chocolate notes. Drink now. 150 cases made. -KM Excellent tawny colour gained through ageing in small oak barrels.
