The latest addition to the range of fine ports from Warres, Otima is an aged 10 year old tawny especially suitable for those with a preference for the lighter style of Port. Its delicate palate challenges the traditional perception of Port as a dark and full-bodied after-dinner drink.
Otima is a Premium Quality Port from a renowned Port house, and brings a lighter, more contemporary style to reflect today's lifestyle - a contemporary, quality drink, versatile enough to be enjoyed anytime.
"The non-vintage Otima 10-Year Old Tawny Port reveals a medium ruby/amber/garnet color, loads of kirsch and cedar intermixed with a touch of brown sugar in the nose, rich, full-bodied flavors, a burgeoning complexity and big aromatics. This is a full-bodied, silky smooth Tawny Port that should age easily for 8-10+ years.
The Wine Advocate
"An aged tawny that manages effortlessly to combine the freshness of a 10-year-old with the dry, cask-aged flavors of an older tawny. Its has dried apricot flavors and orange marmalade, but there is also dryness from wood aging and good concentration. "
"A ripe and rich tawny. Loads of caramel, honey and dried fruits, with just a hint of Douro bake, or iodine character. Full-bodied, sweet and very toffeelike on the palate. Long finish. Dying for nuts and Stilton. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported."
"Fresh fruit introduces the full-on richness of this Tawny, a classical flavor combination of nectarine, almonds and walnuts. There's a fine balance between the caramelized sweetness of the fruit and the nutty bitterness. "
