d'Arenberg's Nostalgia Fine Old Tawny is blended from up to 15 separate fortified wines aged in oak, bottled in small batches, a few times each year. Once bottled, the Nostalgia, like all other Tawny style fortified wines, does not improve in bottle, but can be kept safely after opening.
Nostalgia's color is light to mid tawny mahogany and yellow brown, with khaki and olive green tinges at the edges, indicating advanced base material age. On the nose, the Nostalgia exhibits complex, spicy lifted nutty rancio aromas. The palate, although generous with English toffee and butterscotch and Christmas cake-like flavors, is well balanced by the drying sensations that come from long ageing in oak.
In recent times, and roughly every alternate vintage, Chester Osborn fortifies small amounts of grenache and occasionally shiraz to ensure a small but hopefully constant supply of Nostalgia Fine Old Tawny when introduced to the final blend in future. Until then, the older Nostalgia is best drunk with almonds, currants, dried fruit, cheeses and coffee.
"A blend of Grenache and Shiraz, the NV The Nostalgia Port gives a pale amber color and nose of spice cake, dates, preserved raisins and fig paste. Concentrated, viscous, sweet and rich, it has plenty of crisp acid lingering into the long nutty finish. Drink it now."

In McLaren Vale, there are vines as far as the eye can see. As in other parts of...Read More About McLaren Vale

which in turn halts the fermentation process. This results in a wine both sweet and high in alcohol. Named for its
