Tawny Port

Tawny Port, like Ruby Port, is made from a blend of red wines, but is exposed to a controlled amount of air while being aged in wood, so that it loses redness and oxidizes to a golden-to-brown hue. Aged Tawny Port – labeled by the number of years it has aged, typically from 10 to 30 but as high as 50 – is generally drier than younger Ports, and has rich flavors of nuts and dried fruits. This fortified wine originated in Portugal, but is now produced in other winemaking regions, including California and Australia.
