Quinta Do Bom Retiro 20 Year Old Tawny Port
According to Wine Advocate, this exceptional Tawny Port “does everything well”; it also comes highly recommended by Jancis Robinson’s team of expert tasters, has collected multiple gold medals from Decanter Magazine and the International Wine Challenge, and was the very first wine to be highlighted in Decanter’s Top Ports for Christmas 2017.
Blending young Ports is relatively simple, but combining older ones is a whole different ball game – for that you need a wealth of experience. Luckily, Ramos Pinto has been doing this since 1880, and are therefore a trusted hand. RP20 is a blend of Ports with an average age of 20 years, all from Quinta Do Bom Retiro, one of the oldest and most revered vineyards in the entire Douro region.
Unctuously viscous and the colour of sunsets, this is brimming with dried figs, prunes and apricots, mixed peel, Christmas cake, toasted hazelnuts, chocolate-covered coffee beans, candle wax, chewy liquorice, marmalade, dulce de leche, treacle, vanilla, and the cleansing and refreshing twang of grapefruit. Seriously complex stuff, and versatile too…
A fabulous apéritif or digestif served between 14 and 18°C, and a heavenly match for a big cheeseboard, pecan pie, tarte tatin, fruit cake, Christmas treats, creamy desserts, or chocolate.
