In 1970 company changed ownership from founding family to the Symingtons, who have been Port producers since 1882 & through their Anglo-Portuguese great-grandmother, they trace Port heritage to 1652. Deep Amber color with delicate sweet nutty aromas. The palate showing notes of smoke, caramel, raisins & sweet figs. Long finish some honey, baked plum & hazelnut character. Very nice! 20-year is the sweet spot for affordability & style. Tasting Sample!

Zo heerlijk. Zacht, amandelen, vijgenbrood, peer. Zoet en niet bitter op de afdronk. Genieten!

Deep Amber color with sweet nutty aromas. The palate showing black walnuts with sweet figs. On the lingering finish some honey and caramel poke through. Very nice!
