Penfolds Grandfather Rare Tawny Port

Product description

Beautifully presented in an exquisite gift box, Grandfather Rare Tawny is a highly coveted gift for life’s special milestones. With each vintage, varietal batches are selected for Grandfather. These batches are individually aged in seasoned old oak casks before being blended together at 14 years of age. This blend is then introduced into the ‘Grandfather Solera.’ This Solera consists of six stages that are designed to fully integrate all components offering consistency and freshness with a final minimum average blended age of 20 years.

Penfolds Grandfather Rare Tawny is a pale tawny colour with a touch of brick. On the nose, it is a bit spirituous and shows notes of raisins and fruit cake, some hazelnut and crème brulée. The palate shows even more nuttiness and depth along with greater freshness and acidity, though it seems drier than the Father. It finishes very long, almost like a sweet oloroso or amontillado.
