Tasting notes:

The Dalva 20yr old Tawny port has a lovely dark amber colour to it.

On the nose the port is a heady mix of mince pies, orange peel, figs and some spice.

On the palate, the port is amazingly rich but surprisingly refreshing. The sweetness is well balanced with good acidity and a lovely oxidized subtlety. The flavours are an elegant mix of dark fruits, christmas cake, mocha, cinnamon and slight chocolate. 

This port is perfect when served very slightly chilled, either as an aperatif 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 20 years in oak barrels, maturing and taking on the oxidized characteristics and lovely dark amber colour. 

The Dalva 20yr old Tawny is a blend of different vintages of 20yr 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.
