The Range

Our premium fortified range contains some of the finest wines of their kind on the planet. In a world first innovation, the complete range is bottled in the sophisticated 375ml Vino-Lok bottle with glass stopper and screw cap.

The Wine

Aged for many years in a traditional Solera of small oak barrels, this Tawny displays all the hallmarks of a classic aged port. Beautiful amber colour and a complex array of flavours and aromas such as dried fruit, candied peel, leather and tobacco.

Variety

Any number of varieties can go to make Tawny Port in Australia, most commonly Grenache and Shiraz.

Winemaking

The grapes are crushed and part fermented before being pressed and the still-fermenting juice, spiked with spirit. This kills the yeast and stops the fermentation in its tracks. The wine is then matured for many years in small oak barrels in the All Saints Estate modified Solera system. This method of ageing Tawny involves bottling a small amount of wine from the oldest batch. This batch is then topped up with slightly younger wine, which in turn is topped with wine that is younger still. This technique freshens the oldest wine and, if done well, provides a continuous and consistent supply of wonderfully aged fortified wine.

Food Matching

Ideally sipped in front of a roaring fire with your toes still tingling from a day on the ski slopes. This idyllic setting aside it is great with hard cheeses and nuts, matches well with Panforte or a rich Christmas cake and can partner seriously dark, bitter chocolate.

Cellaring Potential

This wine is bottled ready to drink and will not benefit from being kept longer in bottle. The ageing in barrel involves a complex interaction with the oxygen that seeps through the barrel wood, once out of the barrel, the oxygen is cut off and the port will slowly go a touch stale over a couple of years. The good news is that, unlike table wines, an opened bottle will last weeks or months before starting to deteriorate.

"An exceptional Grand because it balances the complexity of its age with freshness and vitality. Bright mid-amber hue with a touch of ruby to its rim; offers lemon drops, cardamom, treacle and burnt toffee with more complexing influences of freshly rolled tobacco and bitter herbs. It's smooth and lingers long. A treat." 
Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, August 2018
