*UK mainland only
William Offley founded the eponymous wine merchant in London in 1737, and soon began importing and bottling Port. By 1787, Offley was described as ‘one of the most considerable English houses at Porto.’ The house became famous for its association with Joseph James Forrester, later the Baron of Forrester, who came to Oporto in 1831 and became famous for mapping the Douro, and for painting many of its landscapes. Since 1997, Offley has thrived under the ownership of Sogrape. Quality, derived from the fact that their best wines come from prime sites in the Cima Corgo region, has once again moved it up the ranks of Port producers.
A blend of tawny Ports of different ages to give an average of 10 years old, this is a wine with fruity notes of sloe, damson and plum alongside some more developed raisined fruit and nutty tones.
Offley 10 Year Old Tawny Port has an intense tawny colour with brick-like tones. Its elegant and complex bouquet is characterised by flavours of ripe fruit, marmalade and nuts, along with notes of vanilla and raisins. On the palate, the balance between rich sweetness and fine tannins provides the wine with an excellent structure and a delicate yet complex finish.
