Smith Woodhouse’s Ten Year Tawny is blended from wines of the very highest quality, matured solely in wood and bottled for immediate consumption. The maturation in oak casks lends this aged tawny a delicate “nutty” character, which marries beautifully with the delicious raisiny flavours. Aged Tawny is perhaps the most versatile Port style, and Smith Woodhouse’s Ten Year Old is appreciated for its delicacy, complexity and
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.
Smith Woodhouse’s 10 Years Old Tawny is a perfect match to sweet pastries, such as apple pie with cinnamon. Taste slightly chilled to appreciate the full complexity and sensuous pleasure of this wine. An excellent alternative to vintage port at less formal occasions. Will keep for some weeks after opening.
