Warre Port Blend Porto King's Tawny NV

Winemaker's Notes:

VINIFICATION: Warre’s King’s Tawny under-goes fermentation with natural yeast at between 24-28ºc. Once the must has fermented to the desired degree of sweetness (usually within 48 hours), fortification takes place with grape brandy at 77% v/v (generally 80% must / 20% brandy). AGEING: Warre’s King’s Tawny is aged in oak casks for an average of 3 years, and is bottled when ready to drink. TASTING NOTES: Amber colour, with good fruit and a slightly nutty character on the nose, very smooth on the palate with an excellent long finish. SERVING TIPS: - Does not need decanting. - The wine is ready to drink when bottled, but will maintain its quality in bottle. - Serve at room temperature 18ºc, or slightly chilled in hot weather. - Superb with cheese, nuts or dried fruit after a meal.

Young Tawny Ports are especially selected because they are lighter andmore delicate than Ruby Ports. Warre's Kings Tawny is an excellent exampleof a light and elegant wine, which can be chilled as an aperitif.
