The Royal Oporto Tawny is one of the many selections of fine Ports from Portugal that are now available at Clark Wine Center and other wine outlets of Yats Wine Cellars in Manila.
Tasting notes: Tawny Port is made by blending several ports from casks of different ages. Extended oak aging gives Tawny Ports a not so tannic backbone but nevertheless a full body. Oxidative ageing gives it a raisin and dried fruit flavor that works well with sweet and salty dishes.
