Dow's 10 year old tawny Port reveals an amber golden colour. It is soft and rich on the palate with a fine and mellow fruit flavour blending in with the almond overtones of prolonged cask ageing.

Most of Dow’s Old Tawny Ports are aged in the company’s extensive cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia where the moderate coastal climate plays a key role in bringing a balanced aging process to the wine. Ports aged in the Douro tend to react to the great heat of the summer months by gaining over-strong caramelised flavours. A small proportion of Douro aged tawny Ports are normally a valuable addition to the final blend, but in excess, they will unbalance a great Tawny Port.
