Ramos Pinto 20-Year-Old Tawny is produced by the traditional Port method. The hand-picked grapes are destemmed and crushed before fermentation at controlled temperatures, with skin maceration to extract tannin, colour and flavour. The addition of grape spirit at the ideal moment sets the balance between the wine's sweetness and bouquet. The moment of fortification is chosen by the winemaker following strict control of fermentation temperatures and densities according to the vine variety, maturation stage and the final sweetness required. After the harvest, the wines remain in the Douro until the following spring, when they are taken to Vila Nova de Gaia and enter Ramos Pinto lodges for ageing in oak wood casks. The final blend results from a selection of wines between 9 and 24 years of age, composed to maintain the consistency and character of this Ramos Pinto 20-Year-Old Tawny Port.
