A decade of ageing in 100-year old oak Port barrels can do remarkable things to a wine.
Cockburn’s 10 Years Old Tawny Port is what you savour when you really want something special. It is made from the highest quality grapes. We only select those that we know are going to stand the test of time.
The result is that the 10 Years Old is silky smooth, delicately fruity with a background of complex caramel, vanilla, honey and wood-aged flavours.
There are thousands of oak barrels in our Lodge filled with Port gradually mellowing. The great complexity and balance of this wine comes from skilfully blending a number of different wines, all of a different age. By adding some much younger wines we give our 10 Year Old that little extra vigour while some much older wines give it great profundity.
How to Serve
Best enjoyed surrounded by friends and great conversation. With dessert, after a meal, before a meal, or any time in between. You don’t need to decant it, it’s ready and raring to go. The 10 Years Old will go on and on, staying fresh for up to 8 weeks, if you can resist it for that long. We recommend that you serve it chilled, straight from the fridge or ice bucket.
