Burmester 10-Year-Old Tawny Port (Portugal)


Tawny Port gets its rusty hue from time spent in barrel, which oxidizes the formerly deep-red fortified wine. That process also mellows flavours, imparting a nutty character. Roasted nuts come through loud and clear here, along with nuances of candied orange. The acid balance is perfect, sweet but not cloying and wonderfully complex. $29.90 in Que.
