Description:
Excellent tawny colour gained through ageing in small oak barrels. The nose shows layers of mature fruit aromas, beautifully integrated with nuances of nuts and crystallized dried fruits. On the palate very smooth and mellow, with a well-balanced and long finish.

Smith Woodhouse's 10 Years Old Tawny is a perfect match to sweet pastries, such as apple pie with cinnamon. Taste slightly chilled to appreciate the full complexity and sensuous pleasure of this wine. An excellent alternative to Vintage Port at less formal occasions. Will keep for some weeks after opening.

90 out of 100 points
"Another Symington family brand that often shows well, Smith Woodhouse 10 year old is big and firm, quite tannic even, and very rich and dry. This is a good, solid, powerful wine, with great finishing acidity."
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, August 2006

"Lots of dried fruit, toffee and caramel on the nose. Full-bodied and very sweet, with lots of fruit and a medium toffee finish... I like it."
James Suckling, Wine Spectator, 15th September 2003

Producer Information

Smith Woodhouse consistently steals the show when it comes to Vintage Ports - they are eagerly sought out by true Port lovers but often are unheralded when amongst the trade's biggest names - that is until the tasting begins.

Smith Woodhouse is a specialist producer of premium quality Ports made primarily from grapes grown in the vineyards of Quinta da Madalena, a small but very good 7 hectare property in the heart of Rio Torto Valley, long recognised as one of the best areas of the Douro.
As a specialist producer, quality takes priority above all else.
Only the best fruit is used, picked by hand and transported in small boxes to ensure the best possible condition of the grapes coming into the winery.

Rigorous selection standards and the low-yielding old vines of the Madalena vineyard combine to ensure that the quantity of Port bottled each year is very limited but of uncompromising quality.
