Tawnies with an age indication such as "20 years" are blended from different wines averaging 20 years.
The prolonged ageing in small wooden casks confers the characteristic Tawny colour. The principle features of an aged tawny are the complexity of aromas, the freshness and a persistent bouquet and refinement.
After dinner, 20 years old tawny is a good match with cheeses and especially chocolate based desserts.
It can also be drunk as an aperitif, serve at room temperature or lightly chilled
