*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 make it an average of 30 years old, this is a wine that exhibits rich nutty, caramel, toffee, and spice flavours.
Amber in colour with greenish hints. Its bouquet is particularly intense and complex, with notes of caramel, mocha, walnut and tobacco leaf, harmoniously fine-tuned over the years of careful evolution in oak. On the palate, it is very well-balanced showing a delicate structure and a sublime finish. It is produced in very limited quantities and represents the pinnacle of Offley’s age indicated Tawnies.
