Quevedo 20-Year-Old Tawny Port

A sweet, amber delight

Ranked among the top 2% of wines in the world, the Por¬≠to Queve¬≠do Tawny is a deli¬≠cious and extreme¬≠ly pleas¬≠ing dessert wine, per¬≠fect for after a long day.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

A beau¬≠ti¬≠ful gold¬≠en amber col¬≠or, called tawny after a type of owl whose brown brick feath¬≠ers resem¬≠ble the shade this sweet Por¬≠tu¬≠gal wine takes on after it is aged in oak barrels.

It has a nut¬≠ty, caramel-like aro¬≠ma, reflect¬≠ing the oak and tof¬≠fee notes it takes on as you drink it. This Douro del¬≠i¬≠ca¬≠cy owes its fla¬≠vor pro¬≠file to the slow oxi¬≠da¬≠tion it under¬≠goes, giv¬≠ing it a very bal¬≠anced, yet deep and com¬≠plex taste.

PREPA­RA­TIONS AND PAIRINGS

If you insist on hav­ing this sweet delight at the start of your meal (and we won’t judge), it goes well with both mature, hard cheeses, and soft­er, but­tery ones. We sug­gest our Beau­fort, or our Camem­bert de Nor­mandie.

An incred¬≠i¬≠ble dessert wine, the Por¬≠to Queve¬≠do Tawny pairs excel¬≠lent¬≠ly with an apple cake, or a cof¬≠fee cake as a meal ender.

A LOVE LIKE WINE

Oscar Queve¬≠do and Beat¬≠riz Morais Queve¬≠do are a match made in wine heav¬≠en, with both hail¬≠ing from fam¬≠i¬≠lies with long, rich his¬≠to¬≠ries of grow¬≠ing grapes and mak¬≠ing Port. Oscar‚Äôs fam¬≠i¬≠ly got their start as far back as 1889, when their ances¬≠tor, Abel Gou¬≠veia Cos¬≠ta plant¬≠ed the first vines in the Val¬≠on¬≠go dos Azeites in S. Jo√£o da Pesqueira. It has since expand¬≠ed to new estates through the generations.

Beatriz‚Äôs fam¬≠i¬≠ly, on the oth¬≠er hand, has roots along the Douro Riv¬≠er, in the Car¬≠raze¬≠da Dis¬≠trict. Her fam¬≠i¬≠ly owns Quin¬≠ta da Ale¬≠gria, which the Queve¬≠do win¬≠ery uses.

Oscar worked as a lawyer and admin¬≠is¬≠tra¬≠tor in the Reg¬≠istry Office, and Beat¬≠riz was a doc¬≠tor in the local hos¬≠pi¬≠tal. But they even¬≠tu¬≠al¬≠ly decid¬≠ed to set¬≠tle down in S. Jo√£o da Pesqueira in the late 70‚Äôs. The call of wine mak¬≠ing was too strong, though, and they even¬≠tu¬≠al¬≠ly fell deeply in love with the art, increas¬≠ing pro¬≠duc¬≠tion area in the 80‚Äôs. And in the 90‚Äôs, they put up the win¬≠ery we all know and love today.
