OLD BOYS 21 YEARS BARREL AGED TAWNY
Region
Multi-region
Appearance
Classic tawny colour with streaks of
amber.
Bouquet
An array of aromas are on display
with dark raisined fruits, mocha,
hints of vanillin oak and nutty aged
barrel characters.
Palate
Initially luscious with richly
concentrated fruit and nut flavours.
Nuances of mocha and coffee have
integrated over time with vanillin
oak to develop complex, barrel
aged flavours in harmony resulting
in a smooth, lingering drying finish.
Suggested Cuisine
Tawnys are a traditional after
dinner wine that can be savoured
with a platter of cheeses or a rich
fruit or chocolate dessert.
General Characteristics
Sweet / Medium bodied
Winemaking
Fruit is allowed to stay on the vine
until very sweet and an intense
concentration of flavours has
developed. After crushing and
partial fermentation to retain some
sweetness, the wine is pressed and
then fortified with a neutral spirit
prior to maturation in small and large
format oak casks.
Wine Analysis
Alc/Vol: 19.0% pH: 3.34 TA: 6.5 g/L
Cellaring
With an average age of 21 years,
Old Boys Barrel Aged Tawny can be
cellared for extended maturation in
bottle but is blended to be enjoyed
on opening at any time.
