Winery Tasting Notes

The fruit for this Grand Tawny Port was harvested in late March at about 14° Baume. The juice was fermented on skins to extract colour and fine tannins. During this process a neutral grape spirit was added, partially fortifying the juice to add greater flavour integration and complexity. The wine was then drained off skins, gently pressed and fortified to 18.5% v/v alcohol.

Once the wine was fortified it was placed in small old barrels to mature within the solera system. Over the years as the wine aged in oak, evaporation occurred concentrating the flavours and increasing the complexity.

To produce a premium Grand Tawny Port requires great patience and many various components. These blend components are a mixture of the solera barrels from youngest to oldest Tawny Ports, with a very small proportion of old, dry Sherry to aid complexity.

The wine was finally cold stabilised, filtered and stored in stainless steel tanks until required for bottling.

On the palate, this wine has incredible rich liqueur raisin characters like that of a Christmas fruit cake. An exceptional round mid palate and fine tannins, finishes with a lusciousness that lingers long after consumption.

This wine will cellar for many years to come and is best consumed within ten years to retain its complex rancio freshness.

Winery Profile

Set in the midst of the unique Australian landscape is the McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Winery. Established in 1917, the winery stands today as a pillar of winemaking excellence dedicated to creating the very best wines.

In March 2008, following two years of significant investment and expansion, the new McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Winery was opened.

The multi-million dollar development project saw the creation of a new small winemaking facility, created to handle small, premium parcels, with state-of-the-art equipment as well as new laboratory and winemaking areas, and a brand new office. The expansion allows greater flexibility and opportunities for wine style development and innovation in the region and an ongoing commitment to the Riverina area since its winemaking potential was first discovered by John James McWilliam in 1913, when he established the first winery in the region - McWilliam’s Hanwood Estate.
