Tawny Port is a delicate red brown in colour – the tawny in the name – and has lovely sweet nutty flavours on the palate that resonate with the creamy blueness of Stilton. It is matured in cask, here an average of 10 years, before bottling in 2011. Produced for us by chief winemaker David Guimaraens of the Fladgate group, owners of the fine Fonseca and Taylors Houses amongst others. Serve chilled with dried fruits and nuts as an aperitif, after a meal to lift the palate, or savour over a long evening.
Established in 1822, Fonseca Guimaraens, often just referred to as Fonseca, is one of the most important and successful Port houses today.
