SERVING SUGGESTIONS Tawny ports can be drunk chilled as an aperitif or at the end of the meal either on their own or with dessert or cheese.åÊ Tawny ports, by their nature are slightly oxidized in style, this means that they can be kept open longer than Vintage ports.åÊ This port can be left open for a few weeks when stored in a cool place with a vacuvin or cork.

TASTING NOTESåÊAll our ports are made in the ‰Û÷house style‰Ûª namely slightly drier without any cloying sweetness that can be associated with some other ports. We also work hard making sure the brandy is well integrated. As with our wines, we search for harmony and equilibrium from our vineyards and we try to enable the grapes to express themselves in the bottle. The La Rosa style is to make well defined wines without too much extraction and tannin.
The beautiful golden colour is a good indication of the age of this excellent tawny port.åÊ With a great richness and aromatic complexity, notably of almond and spices, the 20 year old has a seductive texture with dry fruits and liqueur flavours.åÊ As is normal with these aged tawnies, the La Rosa twenty year old has incredible length and is an ‰Û÷aristocrat‰Ûª of ports.
