Tasting notes:

The Dalva 10yr old Tawny port is a lovely amber colour with notes of brick red too.

On the nose the port is a mix of mature red fruits, stewed plum, raisin, honey, nuts and a lovely fresh touch of citrus fruit.

On the palate, the port is rich, sweet and at the same time refreshing. The refreshing acidity balances the sweetness well. The flavours are mix of red fruit conserve and classical hints of mince pie, coffee, dried citrus peel and a lovely lingering touch of pepper. 

This port is perfect when served very slightly chilled, either as an aperitif or after a meal with cheese/pudding.

About the port:

After harvesting and fermentation, neutral grape spirit is added to the wine. This halts fermentation, increases the alcohol content and leaves a significant amount of residual sugar, hence the sweetness.

The port is then aged for 10 years in oak barrels, maturing and taking on the oxidized characteristics and lovely dark amber colour. 

The Dalva 10yr old Tawny is a blend of different vintages of 10yr old Tawny Port (Colheita's).

About the producer:

The company was established in the Douro in 1862 by the Portuguese family, Correa Ribeiro. The name was then changed in 1957 to the now C. da Silva when Mr Clemente da Silva received the company through marriage.

The company is dedicated to perfecting the art of production of  the finest port, through careful selection of the best wines in each vintage. 

During the ageing process, careful monitoring of quality takes place by highly skilled winemakers in modern, technologically advanced laboratories.
