All Saints pride and joy are the oldest vineyard blocks of vines, originally planted just after the First World War. These old-timers are picture-postcard vines, weather-beaten and twisted, defying the years to produce fantastic fruit. Predominantly made from Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro grapes, with added brandy spirit, which is used to fortify the wine, The Keep Tawny expresses the inimitabley rich personality of the deep, rancio-like qualities of Rutherglen grapes. During maturation of any fortified wine a significant amount of wine is lost through evaporation. This loss is normally between two to five per cent each year, and is affectionately referred to as the angels share (now there's something to look forward to!). Alcohol 18.
 
The wine has a tawny colour with hints of red. The aroma is a mix of ripe berry fruit, with rancio characters from extended barrel maturation. On the palate there is ripe fruit giving a generous mouth feel with hints of vanilla and chocolate. Nuances of deep liqueuring, Port and plum-like, chocolatey and wet with sweet scents of browned old grapes and dried sugary fruit. Delicious, nutty and velvety, ripe yet texturally soft, slabs of melty raisined chocolate, brushstrokes of caramel and Irish coffee, the wine has an attractive drying finish. This wine should cellar extremely well for between one and two decades. Enjoy with a cheese selection (the stronger types) or after dinner with well brewed coffee and a good conversation.

Colour has developed into a nut red-brown. Appealing bouquets of plum and ginger, sticky figs and ripe date puddings, smokey peat and fine spirit. On the palate lie characters of treacle and walnut, marmalade, beef suet and orange rind, notes of unslated roast nuts and sweet black cherries, strawberry and hints of maple. The wine is deep and rich, the alcohol soothing and suitably attired, flavoursome and beautifully focused, the tannins whisper past with a sigh of relief at being unnoticed. Tawny rancio characters, old barrels and history, Old and Wise and complex, yet offering much freshness and vivacity for such a well developed wine. It calls for Stilton, after dinner coffee, and liquored chocolatey desserts.

Established 1858, Chambers Rosewood have continued to produce the richest, most complex dessert wines. Their ancient, rarest stocks date back to soleras from 1890, the unirrigated vines, many of which are over eighty years old, yield scant harvests of precious grapes which are endowed with wonderfully concentrated flavours. All the work is performed by hand and nothing is done hastily. The vineyard crew truly have their work cut out for them in protecting the vines and curbing the spread of disease. As ever, the focus is on producing the best quality fruit. Co-ordination of the harvest is a big job as it's reliant on the weather and vagaries of season, as various varieties and individual blocks ripen at different times.
 
Garnet red in colour. A complex, spiced cherry, black and blueberry bouquet, complexed by sweetly scented liquorice and the savouryness of tar. Mouth filling palate of ripe plum and cherry fruits over coffee and dark rich chocolate flavours. An impressive finish of great length and lingering dried festive cake fruit characters.

De Bortoli can draw on precious old stocks from which to assemble Old Boys Tawny. Topping up the wines as they age in barrel is an important part of the process. Some of the older barrels were close to forgotten when inventoried by De Bortoli and this has kept the winemakers on their toes as they balanced the fluctuation of flavour from sample to sample. It is essential for grapes to ripen on the vine until an intense concentration of flavours have developed and the fruit is very sweet. After crushing and partial fermentation to retain some residual sugars, the wine is pressed and fortified with neutral spirit prior to maturation in a selection of large and small format oak casks. Alcohol 19.5%
 
Classic tawny colour with streaks of amber. An array of aromas on display, dark raisined fruits and mocha, hints of vanillin oak and nutty aged barrel characters. Initially luscious with richly concentrated fruit and nut flavours. Nuances of mocha and coffee have integrated over time with vanillin oak to develop complex, barrel aged flavours in harmony resulting in a smooth, lingering drying finish. The traditional after dinner wine to be savoured alongside desserts, coffee and cheese.
