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.
An excellent example of elegance and richness. Infantado Tawny Port is a blend of 2-3 wines, aged in barrels and small “Tonies” (slightly smaller than barrique Bordelaise). The Tawny Port is lighter than the Ruby, but still expressive of fruit with coffee and toffee. It is a blend of Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo), Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Barroca.
This richly flavoured Tawny is one of the best Tawny’s available. Not too sweet, ripe and beautifully rounded with a very long finish.
There is no better Tawny Port to get than this from Quinta do Infantado. Excellent body and richness with notes of toasted hazelnuts and raisins followed by a touch of sweetness. Just lovely.
A nose full of nuts and caramel and in the mouth a sublime vanilla, coffee and raisins with a delicious hint of a spicy finish. This flavor profile is different than you would get from a Ruby style due to the aging in small oak or chestnut “tonies”.
