Portal 10 Year Old Tawny

Portal’s 10 Year Old Tawny (Portugal; $42; MLCC)is a blend of different wines aged in old casks for many years in our cellars where they acquire the amber colour and turn the young rich fruit into elegance. It’s big yet balanced by fine acidity. It developed aromas of caramel, cafe au lait along with nutty flavors. Enjoy it with tarte tatin or macadamia ice-cream.
