    Winemaker's Notes:

    Four decades ago my father Wyndham initiated the practice of putting aside a few barrels of each years production of our deluxe tawny ports. Known in the cellar as "Antique Tawny", these wines are left to quietly mature in various corners of our marble cellars. During this ageing process, evaporation (known as the "Angels Share") occurs at between 2.5% and 4.5% each and every year. Our master port blender, David Doc Zimmermann, then painstakingly assembles a wine with an average age of over 15 years - rich and concentrated, it is an important part of Australias wine heritage.

    COLOUR: Deep tawny with green tinges around the edges indicating prolonged aging in wood.

    BOUQUET: Intense wood aged rancio featuring dried fruits, chocolate and caramel. Elegant brandy spirit adds sweet vanillin and oak complexity.

    PALATE: Rich and soft in the middle. Complex rancio flavours with persistent nutty caramel aftertaste. Fine spirit characters balance the sweetness producing an elegant drying finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The Non-Vintage Museum Reserve Antique Tawny is medium amber-colored with aromas of ginger, figs and dates. Intense, ripe, and very sweet, it will finish off your meal in style

    Dark and smoky, sweet but not syrupy, this features coffee, chocolate, walnut and hazelnut flavors that linger effortlessly. Touriga, Muscadelle, Tinta Molle, Tinta Cão, Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now. 1,500 cases imported.

    Burnt orange with a yellow rim. Aromas of spices, grilled nuts, orange peel and musky earth evoke Tokaji. Firm and dry-edged in the mouth, with focused apricot pit and walnut flavors. The long, mineral-inflected finish is dry and bracing.

    I have had many ports, and love the stuff. One day following a hike in Yosemite I stopped in at the hotel bar and got the port sampler. This one blew me away! It's rich and has a little tang to it. This stuff is the most incredible port ever.

    Yalumba's antique tawny is a terrific value. It's got everything a classic top-flight tawny's got except the high price. Yalumba got this one right! Re-purchased and is highly recommended! Although not from Portugal, this can be called a port anytime the snobs aren't listening. Check out our other reviews at blog.vinoduo.com

    This little gem from Australia has as gloriously rich palate of sweet spice and caramelized toffee offset by a drying finish and nutty complexity. Perfect way to end a meal! Over delivers on value.

    Smoky and smooth with oaky flavor highlighted with blasts of dried fruit (raisins, dates). It floats in my mouth, it is a gutsy, billowy smooth Australian port with a fantastic aftertaste. A perfect sipping wine and a wonderful nightcap.

    Beautiful nose of cloves, vanilla, and a bit of smoke. Favor is rich and full with mellow fruits, caramel, toffee and hints of spice. This port easily stands its own against 20 year tawnys. A must try for any port-lover!

    Clean on the palate, undernote of flowers and rounded by aged oak this offering from the Barossa represents a great example of the art.

    Nose of raisins, molasses, allspice. Thick and heavy on the palate with raisin, honey, brown sugar. A little short on the finish
