Product information "Portwine barrel 150 l - rebuilt"

From freshly emptied 500 l Tawny-Port barrels, which were filled with port wine for about 15 years, these 150 l reconstructions were created.

In order to achieve an even better aroma, the barrels were filled with Tawny Port for an additional 12 months after the conversion.


The actual process that turns wine into port wine is "fortification", i.e. the spraying of the fermenting must with high percentage ethyl alcohol. Here the fermentation of the port wine is stopped by adding wine distillate. The further the wine is fermented, the less brandy is added. Port wine may have an alcohol content of between 19 and 22% by volume as the end product.

Twany convinces in the nose with a fresh citrus scent as well as caramel notes, coffee and chocolate. A taste of local to exotic fruits and vanilla with a nutty undertone develops.
