Perfect dessert port offering aromas of smoky toffee and toasted nuts. This fortified Portuguese dessert wine offers a toffee richness on the nose and palate with a great spicy zing on the finish. Rich dessert wine for toasted nuts and hard cheeses. Good balance of acidity and luxurious layers of flavour. Highly recommended.

Food pairings: nuts, aged and smoked cheeses.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous bright amber hue with a very fragrant nose of caramel, nuts and vanilla. A very satisfying satiny palate gives buttery toffee, nuts and vanilla, with silky finish.

tasted December 2013
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Tawny in colour as well as in the name. This is a seductive port with layers of flavours and aromas. Butterscotch, hazelnut and toffee. Luscious nutty flavours and some sweet spice. Drizzle some on your ice cream or sip after dinner with some blue cheese and nuts. Tasted March 13, 2017.
Burmester Tawny Port is delicious with roasted nut, fruitcake and toffee flavours. So rich and so good, this tawny port is made from old vines and matured for 10 years in small oak casks. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
