This Australian fortified wine exhibits a beautiful amber colour and a complex array of flavours and aromas such as dried fruit, candied peel, leather and tobacco lace the nose of our Grand Rutherglen Tawny.
Ideally sipped in front of a roaring fire with your toes still tingling from a day on the ski slopes. This idyllic setting aside our Grand Rutherglen Tawny is a great match with hard cheeses and nuts, as well as matching with Panforte and seriously dark, bitter chocolate. There's no need to save our tawny wine for special occasions, as unlike table wines, an opened bottle will last months before starting to deteriorate.
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.
Any number of varieties can go to make Tawny Port in Australia, most commonly Grenache and Shiraz.
