Tawny Reserve Port NV, Morgadio di Calcada, Douro, Portugal

Sold out.

The vineyards of Morgadio sit at 650m on the high plains of the Douro region surrounding a magnificent 17th Century house on the edge of the town of Provesende a few miles North of Pinhao. The altitude gives the wines a lovely acidity and freshness which is very much apparent in this excellent tawny reserve – a wine created to showcase freshness and ripe fruit alongside the complex aromas and flavours that arise after a long, steady evolution in barrel. Upon tasting you are overwhelmed by rich flavours of ripe and dried fruit balanced with notes of caramel, coffee and a classic nuttiness that develops into an enduring finish of real complexity and elegance.
