TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Messias Tawny has a warm, reddish-orange hue.
  • Nose: Complex and autumnal aromas of stewed fruits, with jammy notes of blackberry, caramel, and vanilla pods.
  • Mouth: Highly complex and smooth, with flavours of coffee, dried fruits, redcurrants, and toasted nuts, into a slightly warm and woody finish.

APPELLATION: Port

VINEYARD: Messias. Messias Baptista was first registered as an individual merchant at the Tribunal do Comércio de Anadia in 1926. Given its polish, professionalism, and pride, you just know that this fine producer started preparing for its centenary celebrations shortly thereafter.

GRAPES: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão

AGEING: Maturation in oak casks prior to bottling.

PREPARATION: A Bronze Medal winner in the Japan Wine Challenge. Fermentation with partial destemming takes place at a controlled temperature of 24-28ºC, and is interrupted by the addition of brandy to retain some sugar for enrichment and fortification.

PAIRING: [[1] is a gorgeous accompaniment to cheeses, particularly strong and blue cheeses like Pecorino, Roquefort, or Stilton. It complements certain rich savoury meat and fowl dishes like Duck Pancakes or Beef Carpaccio. You might also enjoy it alongside creamy but less sweet desserts, or roasted chestnuts and other nut-based post-dinner treats.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 14-16°C

ALCOHOL: 19.5%
