On an unseasonally chilly day last month in CT, while pouring at an afternoon trade tasting, I fell in love with Yalumba Antique Tawny big time! The lovely nutty, molasses aromas, the rich caramel flavors, the warmth, the simple deliciousness. Must get my hands on this to have at home!

A fabulous find. How can a tawny port be so affordable for such quality? Beautiful nose, warmth and flavour. This port was an instant hint - and the only problem with it is that it is so difficult to find locally.

My husband and I are kind of picky about port, and we love this one! we keep it in stock for guests after dinner, etc. It's on the mellow side, rather than spicy or citrusy.

Deep tawny with green tinges around the edges. The bouquet is intense featuring dried fruits, chocolate and caramel. Elegant brandy spirit adds sweet vanillin and oak complexity.On the palate it is rich and soft in the middle. Complex rancio flavors with persistent nutty caramel aftertaste. Fine spirit characters balance the sweetness producing an elegant drying finish.

Yalumba Antique Tawny is from South Australia. Recently it got a great rating of 96 points through Wine Advocate. Tasting note mentions ".... aromas of wood aged rancio, elegant brandy spirit and hints of dried fruits and spices."

Yalumba is a fabulous source of antique fortifieds that often sell for a song. The extraordinary non-vintage Museum Release Antique Tawny exhibits a medium amber color along with notes of prunes, sweet berries, raisins, spice, and jammy, overripe strawberries. Believed to be from a 20-year-old solera, it is delicious, but unlikely to improve. None of these Australian fortifieds improve in the bottle, but they rarely change and can be kept for a long time. Once opened, they should be consumed within 4-7 days.(Wine Advocate)

Comes across as slightly spirity on the nose, with a pronounced nutty character that persists throughout, but which is balanced by layers of dark toffee, molasses and date-like fruit on the palate. This is rich and sweet, with great intensity on the ... Wine Enthusiast. A Port wine from South Australia in Australia. N.V. Yalumba Tawny Port 21 Year Old 375ml

Rich dark and unctuous its layers of crhme br{lie walnut hazelnut and coffee mingling easily against lovely hints of molasses. The finish brings it all together harmoniously and lingers beautifully. Drink now. 50 cases imported. -Harvey Steiman Wine Spectator.
