“The NV 20-Year-Old Tawny Port is the winery's first-ever 20. It is rather impressive, youthful and a bit decadent. It comes in at 125 grams per litre of residual sugar and adds the needed concentration and richness to the 10, also reviewed. It is basically the 10 with more stuffing, rich, big and even a touch syrupy if drunk too warm. For all of its richness, it still has some underlying freshness, too. It finishes with a wave of sweetness and tasty fruit. There is plenty of power, too, plus a little noticeable alcohol. Drink this at the proper temperature--around 58-60 degrees Fahrenheit. It also smoothed out beautifully over a few days. The fruit and sugar give it sex appeal and they generally balance the alcohol and power, even on the first day. It is quite delicious. This has some complexity, incidentally, a notable bit of molasses on the finish, but it rates higher on the hedonism scale. There were just 1,230 bottles produced from vines averaging 45 years in age. Bottled in 2016, this comes with a bar top cork.” 

“Dense brown-gold colour. Complex aromas combining nuts, dried figs and peaches, caramel, iodine and sandalwood. Subtle ethereal note that contrasts with the high sugar-high alcohol tension. Compact, with significant mid-palate depth and long length. Tedo’s unique Tawny Port house-style showcases the richness and power of great Port Wine.” - Jorge Alves, Winemaker
