On the eighth day of Christmas my wine rack gave to me a Tahbilk Grand Tawny

To settle you in to Thursday evening, and prepare you for Friyay, a cheeky Tawny after dinner is a great choice!

I’ve featured this wine on my blog before – ‘hop yourself to nagambie over the Easter long weekend for some great wine’ It’s so good that it deserves a place in the advent wine calendar – It’s the Tahbilk Grand Tawny.
From one of Australia’s oldest wineries, founded in 1860, this port delivers all the deliciousness and stickiness that you look for in a port.

Pour yourself a glass of this, and it will feel like you’re sipping on Christmas cake. What better wine to get you excited and geared up for the day the man in the big red suit arrives!

The other beauty is that it comes in a 750ml bottle, which means it will keep providing you with little glasses of joy for a while. Generally, when you do open one a bottle of port, consumption should happen in 3 months for it to be at its optimum level, which is plenty of time to savor and enjoy it.

“This impressive fortified has had extended ageing in seasoned oak barrels and shows classic tawny colour. The nose exhibits distinguished aromas of walnut and prune with a complex mix of dried fruits. The palate is deeply flavoured and concentrated with characteristic caramel, toffee, walnut and fruitcake flavours, whilst the finish is long and lingers well into an evening of quiet contemplation!” www.tahbilk.com.au

Until next time winos
