Burmester Tawny -
A classic port wine, which helped the drink became famous throughout the world. Initially red in colour, this wine is obtained by blending different harvests. At first it is aged in oak vats and after 4 years it is blended. Its ageing and consequent oxidation in oak makes its colour turn from red to orangey (tawny) and the fresh fruit tones gain nutty dry fruit nuances, lending the wine a subtle elegance.
