Dow's Forty Years Old Tawny is made
exclusively from grapes sourced at "A"
classified vineyards (the highest), which
include Dow's Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta
da Senhora da Ribeira, two of the very best
vineyards in the Douro valley. This enviable
position is reflected in the excellent quality and
consistency of the style evident in Dow's 40-
This Forty Year Old Port is a wine of great rarity and quality. Forty years of
careful ageing in oak casks have brought this wine to perfect balance. This
wine represents the pinnacle of the Port blender's art. Fine amber and tawny
colour. Complex aromas of nuts, raisins and vanilla explode from the glass.
On the palate hot, with predominantly flavours of dried fruits and walnuts, with
good acidity and an exquisite long finish.
"A dark, concentrated wine, very impressive. But with all this concentration, there is also sweet fruit, flavors of apricots that have been bottled in spirits. This is a lovely wine, with just a hint of mature, medicinal character."
"Shimmering with delicate flavors of dried orange peel, almond and honey, this has the textural grace of age. The warmth of the alcohol in the end places it with flan.
Wine & Spirits
Dow's has been producing top Ports for over two centuries. One of the first companies to establish its own vineyards, Dow's acquired Senhora da Ribeira, located in the remote Upper Douro, in 1890 and Bomfim, which lies in the heart of Alto Douro, in 1896. Their respective wines, Ribeira with its soft fruit and violet aromas, and Bomfim with its concentrated intensity, provide the backbone to the recognized drier style of Dow's Ports. In 1912, Andrew James Symington became a partner in Dow's and today, five members of the fourth generation Symington family own and manage this historic house.
