Tasting notes:

The Dalva 40 year old Tawny Port is an incredible amber colour.

Thre nose is very rich and fascinating, with notes of fruit cake and crystalized fruit, savoury hazelnut, toffee, tobacco, dark chocolate and coffee. 

The palate is full bodied, and whilst sweet, doesn't cloy as there is refeshing acididty and savoury nutty notes to balance it. The dark, christmas cake and hazelnut notes follow through from the nose lingering with a rich sweetness and lingering salted caramel and sharp fruit on the finish. 

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 40 years in oak barrels, maturing and taking on the oxidized characteristics and lovely amber colour. 

The Dalva 40yr old Tawny is a blend of different vintages of 40yr 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.
