Quinta Seara d'Ordens 10 Year Old Tawny Prestigio

Douro, Portugal

€26.00

A "minimum 10 year old" Tawny that actually gets 14 years in barrel. 11 years are spent in large oak barrels with a further 3 years spent "rounding off" in small French oak casks.

Wonderfully decadent, with vibrant notes of oriental spices, dried fruits and nuts, this rich, oily Tawny has base flavours of butterscotch, honey and fig. Rich and concentrated and huge in length, to be enjoyed slowly and in only the best of company.

Should be served slightly chilled in summer and at room temperature in winter.

THE PRODUCER

The Leite family settled in Poiares Seara, in Portugal's now renowned Douro wine and Port region, in the late 18th century, immediately planting vineyards, olive groves and almond trees, some of which survive to this day. Quinta Seara d'Ordens was derived from the military commander son, who based himself at the estate (quinta) and gave orders (ordens) to the soldiers under his command.
 
Over two hundred years later the estate remains in the Leite family, with João Leite Moreira the latest custodian overseeing production of high quality DOC Douro wines and continuing a long tradition of producing outstanding Ports.
