It has extraordinary complexity with layers of dried fruits, nuts and caramel. It has gained more wisdom and more depth than its younger sibling but age affects the fruit too. Here, the characteristics of wood ageing are really at their peak and the fruit has softened, gaining a smoothness like silk.
It is slightly lighter than many other 20 Year Old Tawny Ports and it also has the Cockburn’s dry finish. We consider it therefore to be a little more refreshing. The quality of the wine we use has to be second to none. Our winemakers taste it and read its future in the shapes, smells and flavours in the glass.
