Offley Baron of Forrester 20YR
Tawny-coloured, with brick-like tones. The bouquet is intense and complex, with hints of vanilla, cinnamon, pepper, ginger, exotic wood, varnish, cedar, nuts such as hazelnut and almond - the result of its careful development over many years. In the palate, its fine structure and the balance between sugars and tannins come to the fore. The finish is delicate and lingering.
Offley 20 Years Old Tawny is a blended wine made from a selection of high quality grapes from the traditional red varieties recommended for the Douro region, especially Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão.
After being destemmed and crushed, the grapes are conveyed to stainless steel vats, where the process of alcoholic fermentation takes place. During this stage, a smooth, temperature-controlled maceration takes place in order to extract the compounds from the grape skin. As with structure, balance and harmony are achieved through the careful selection of grapes and by choosing the right moment to interrupt the fermentation process, by adding brandy. Alcohol: 20%, Total Acidity: 5.1 g / L (tartaric acid), Sugar: 118 g / L, pH: 3.25
