Fine Tawny (750 ml) (Andresen)

Andressen, Fine Tawny, Porto, Portugal, NV (750ml)

CANDIED GINGER, TOASTY CARAMEL, STAR ANISE, NOT OVERLY SWEET

Jann Hinrich Andresen lived an unusual life. In 1840, at the age of 14, he sailed to Porto from the island of Föhr off the coast of the Netherlands. Five years later, at the unbelievable age of 19, he founded the port house that still carries his name. Almost 200 years later, Andresen is one of the few 100% family-owned port houses, and has become internationally known for its high quality products. Their Fine Tawny offers a perfume of raspberry preserves and warm baking spices. Caramel, hazelnut, and sweet tobacco leaf come out to play on the palate. A perfect port to convert the non-port drinker, and an incredible value.

Serving Suggestion: Gingerbread cake baked with chai spices, topped with cream cheese frosting and chunks of tooth-tender toffee.

Tawny, 10 Year (750 ml) (Andresen)

Andressen, 10 Year Tawny, Porto, Portugal

DRIED, CANDIED FRUIT. NUTTY & CARAMELIZED. TOASTED OAK.

When one thinks of Porto, Portugal, they envision the massive Port Houses lining the Douro, as it meanders through the city and into the open waters of the Atlantic. Andresen, which was founded in 1845, has the distinction of being one of the few remaining family-owned estates, continuing to create fine Ports in all styles. This 10 year old Tawny is a fantastic representation of what a Tawny port can be. Aged in older oak casks, the wine showcases robust, nutty aromatics follwed by dried fruit and toastiness on the palate, while presenting the perfect balance of sweetness and maturity. Great as a pre-cursor to a lazy afternoon, an after dinner drink, or with some dessert. Who are we kidding?! Perfect for when life calls for a little decadence and sweetness.

Serving Suggestion: Serra da Estrela (sheep’s milk) cheese & roasted almonds. Crème brûlée w/ a side of baked figs. Apple Pie a la Mode.
