Touriga & Tinto Douro Portugal
Warre's has re established itself as the most innovative marque in Port, balancing a long tradition with innovation and ongoing appeal to new generations of enthusiasts. The clean, modern style makes an excellent fortified wine that continues to claim gold medals at the world's leading competitions year after year.
A fine blend of 20 Year Old Tawnys, another important breakthrough for the Port trade, broadening the perceived image of Port in its traditional markets. An outstanding wine that epitomises everything that is great about a superbly balanced 20 Year Old Tawny. Traditional Portuguese grape varietals from the Douro Valley, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cão. Fruit is treated to vinification through natural yeasts at temperatures between 24C and 28C. Once the must has fermented to the desired degree of sweetness, usually within forty eight hours, fortification takes place with the addition of a 77% grape brandy, a balance of 80% must and 20% brandy.
A translucent copper tone. Beautiful soft nutty aromas gained by a full twenty years ageing in seasoned oak casks. Otima is rich and delicate, but never cloying, the tannins and acidity ensure balance and perfect length.
