Porto Cálem  Fine Tawny Port (750ml)

SKU: 5601077111016
Cálem Tawny Port matures in oak casks. A vivid goldenbrown colour. A nose of honeyed fruit, with aromas of dried fruit and marked notes of wood. In the mouth, it is silky and velvety, intensely fruity and round. A wine with great balance and character.

PLURAL WINES, EVEN IN THE COLOR
Each Cálem wine, with its own aromas and colour, is a surprise that will arouse your senses.

VINIFICATION AND AGEING
Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. Made by blending wines of different harvests, with different levels of maturation in stainless steel and wood for a minimum of 3 years, the result is a rich and aromatic wine, with the perfect level of sweetness.
