Reddish amber color. Very good intensity, raisins, plenty of spicy - woody scent. Notes of almonds and caramelized walnuts and an undertone of coconut. Soft texture, layered, complex with nice tannins, velvety, elegant, well made, a wine with a long finish. Its taste is reminiscent of chocolate, rum and walnut, plums soaked in cognac.
The palate is soft and approachable with dark raisins along with some sweet caramel and toffee.

A port wine with huge potential, a great pleasure for special moments and a perfect gift for port wine lovers.

Try it with: dessert, nuts or cheese

The NV 20 Year Old Tawny Port is a field blend with 132 grams per liter of residual sugar, aged in well used 650-liter casks for approximately 23 years. This shows more nuttiness and complexity than the 10 reviewed this issue, but it remains elegant and spicy. With 132 grams per liter of residual sugar, it is also rather sweet. There is a bit of alcohol showing, too, but this manages to stay in balance mostly. The lingering, flavorful finish is certainly delectable.

Tawny is the color of an owl that lives in the United Kingdom. Their plumage is brown, brick-red in color, and so is port, which ages in oak for some time. That's why we call Tawny Port all port wines that mature in oak wood and develop a nutty, caramel-like profile through slow oxidation. Port wine only acquires its tawny character after some time in the barrel, ie it is not tawny when it is fortified with alcohol, but only after a few years of aging. This type of port wine varies greatly depending on how many years the port wine is aged in casks. Tawny can be as young as five years old and as old as a 40 year old port.

Porto Quevedo 20 Years Old just won the gold medal at the Sakura Japan Women's Wine Awards, a major wine competition in Asia where only women judges. This excellent Porto is extremely flavorful and complex. It offers the expected aromas of nuts, dried fruits and caramel, but also surprises with a spicy note of cinnamon and nutmeg. In addition, it has elegant citrus notes that invite you to enjoy it again and again.

Manufacturer

Although the Quevedo family has been producing port wine for more than 5 generations, the current company was only founded in 1993. This makes us one of the youngest port wine houses on the Douro.

With less than 30 years of existence, we feel like we're still at the beginning of the journey and that every day is a new page that we fill with what we love to do most: explore all the possibilities of enjoying wine.

In the late '70s, Oscar and Beatriz Quevedo decided to start a family in S. João Pesqueira, in the heart of the Douro Valley. Both are descendants of families with a long tradition in viticulture and port wine production.

The first Quevedo vineyards were planted in 1889 by Abel Gouveia Costa in Valongo dos Azeites, in S. João da Pesqueira. Abel was succeeded by his son, Raul Gouveia Costa, who made the business flourish, and then by his son-in-law, João Batista Quevedo, who expanded the vineyards into new operations and passed on the love of winemaking to his son, Oscar Quevedo.

Beatriz's family also had their roots in the Carrazeda district on the north bank of the Douro. The main property of the family was the Quinta da Alegria with the train station of the same name.

After making port in his father's facilities for a number of years, Oscar Sr. built a new winery that is now the Quevedo's headquarters. In the meantime he increased the vineyards to the current 100 hectares and 25 hectares of organic olive cultivation.

In 1993 the Quevedo brand was launched, heralding a new era for the family, who were finally bottling port under their own brand, something only possible since 1986 when Portugal joined the EU.

Growing up surrounded by vineyards and barrels, Cláudia and Oscar Quevedo (Jr.) have followed in their parents' footsteps in the family business.

Cláudia Quevedo graduated in oenology from the University of Vila Real in 1998. Since then she has been making port wines in Quevedo. Cláudia is married to Fernando João Martins and lives near the winery with their children Beatriz and João.

Oscar Quevedo (Jr.), who studied economics in Porto and worked in finance in Switzerland and Spain, joined the family in 2009 after the death of his grandfather. He is responsible for Quevedo sales in more than 40 countries.

He is married to Nadia Adria, who will join the company in 2020 and will be responsible for the Marketing and Tourism department. The couple have three children: Marc, Alba and Miguel.
