Croft 10 Year Old Tawny

Attractive tawny colour with amber rim. Complex nose full of mellow spicy aromas and hints of walnut, butterscotch and fine oak wood, against a background of rich jammy fruit. Beautifully smooth and round on the palate which is full of ripe figgy flavours.
The 10 Year Old Tawny is drawn from a reserve of fine wood ports which have been aged to full maturity in seasoned oak casks, each holding about 630 litres of wine. The individual wines are then blended to guarantee consistency of quality and house style.

Croft 10 Year Old Tawny Port is bottled for immediate drinking.
