This delicious Tawny Port is made of the indigenous grape varieties Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão. The vinification takes place in stainless steel vats with 1 day of pre-fermentative maceration before the fermentation. This wine has a deep brick color with amber rim, with lovely aromas of dried fruits, a delicate nuttiness, honey and a hint of toffee, combined with ripe berry fruit and subtle mellow notes of chocolate, butterscotch and fine oak wood. On the palate is silky and full of ripe figgy, jammy flavors and has a long and clean finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 20 Years Old Tawny Port (Maynard's) comes in at 109 grams per liter of residual sugar. A nice step up on the 10 Year Old Maynard's, also reviewed, this adds some weight, but more importantly, concentration of flavor--those old, classic Tawny nuances. Very pleasing, yet easy to drink, this is a charming 20 that should be available at a nice price. This is the new release, bottled in 2015.
