Offley Baron of Forrester 10YR
Brick-coloured, with golden nuances. Its elegant and complex bouquet is characterised by flavours of ripe fruit, compotes and nuts, with hints of vanilla, raisins and jelly. In the palate, the balance between the richness of the grapes' natural sugars and its tannins give the wine a fine structure and a delicate, yet complex finish.
Offley 10 Years Old Tawny is a blended wine, made from a selection of quality grapes from the traditional red varieties recommended for Porto wine making, namely Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Outras.

The final blend is normally composed of wines aged between 8 and 15 years, thus achieving the average age of 10 years, as well as the Offley quality and style.
