The special thing about the Port wines of Quinta do Infantado is that they are predominantly less sweet than the Port of other brands. This gives them more power in the flavor, which is not muddled by the sweet content. The Port wines of Quinta do Infantado have therefore the flavor description medium-dry.
This Reserva Tawny Port is composed in honor of Dona Margarida, the founder of this Quinta. This as Reserva declared Port has in the nose fragrant hints of dried fruit combined with hints of caramel. The excellent Reserva Tawny has matured for 6 years in oak barrels and is produced using only grapes from Gontelho, the heart of the Porto DOC.
Serving temperature:15 °C. Goes best with nut ice cream, apricot pie or a cheese board.
The aroma has a preponderance of nuts, especially walnuts, with a slight acidity, which is a very pleasant addition for me. On the palate, this Tawny has caramel, raisins and spices. Pretty complex, but consistent. Very fine and long finish.
