Ramos Pinto Tawny Port
Ramos Pinto’s wood-aged ports are blended from several vintages and several quintas. Unlike the majority of port houses, Ramos Pinto owns almost all of its own vineyards and controls the grape quality from pruning to harvest.
The Tawny is a three to five-year-old blend obtained by blending wines with different degrees of maturity brought about by the ageing process in barrels and hogshead casks.
This is a tawny red with a topaz meniscus. The first aroma gives the impression of buoyancy and develops into a great smoothness acquired from having been matured in wood. In the mouth, it feels light, warm and very soft as a result of its ageing. This adolescent Port is mature and fruity, with a complex and delicate character. Its finish is perfectly balanced, giving it some delicateness.
Due to its characteristics as an open wine, the Tawny Port should be drunk in a warm environment. It can be served as an aperitif or with melon, tomatoes filled with fresh cheese and smoked salmon, desserts that are not overly sweet or with cheeses. Serve between 16º and 18º C. Store the bottle upright, in a cool, dry and dark place.
