Product Description

From its aging in wood, Cockburns Fine Tawny loses some of its color and sweetness and acquires the classic nutty/butterscotch flavor of tawny port. This wine is produced from grapes grown in the lower Douro, which are less pigmented and better suited for tawny port. Cockburns Fine Tawny has a smooth full flavor with a toffee nose. As a dessert wine, Fine Tawny pairs well with cream-based desserts such as cheesecake or crème brulee. Cockburns Fine Tawny may also be enjoyed chilled, and served with almonds or pecans.
