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.
This is a tawny Port from a single harvest year. Rich, complex dried fruit and nut flavours make this a wine to savour. Best served slightly chilled.
Brick-red in colour with orange tints. A hugely complex nose with pronounced aromas of raisins, dried apricots, figs, roasted nuts and toffee, married with spicy notes of ginger and nutmeg. On the palate, a vibrant acidity perfectly balances the sweetness and carries the intense flavours onto the elegant and harmonious finish.
