Professional Wine Reviews for De Bortoli 21yr Old Boys Tawny Port

Rated 92 by Stephen Tanzer
Dark amber. Sweet, almost roasted aromas of dark cherry, honeyed nuts, toffee and bitter chocolate. Broad, thick and weighty, the dark honey and mocha flavors showing superb depth and richness, with a texture like motor oil. Finishes expansive and very long, with the darker chocolate and coffee notes building and taking over the palate. This is delicious.

Additional Information on De Bortoli 21yr Old Boys Tawny Port

Winery: De Bortoli

Country: Australia

Whilst most of Australia consists of arid deserts and dense bushland, the oceanic coasts to the south of the country have a terrain and climate ideal for vine cultivation and wine production. It took several decades of failed attempts at the end of the 18th century in order to produce vines of a decent enough quality for making wine, but since those first false starts, the Australian wine industry has continued to grow and grow. Today, wine production makes up for a considerable part of the Australian economy, with exports in recent years reaching unprecedented levels and even overtaking France for the first time ever. Whilst the greatest successes in regards to quality have been the result of the Syrah grape varietal (known locally as Shiraz), Australia utilizes several Old World grapes, and has had fantastic results from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Riesling, Chardonnay and more. As the Australian passion for locally produced wine continues to develop, wineries have begun experimenting with a wider range of grape varietals, meaning that nowadays it isn't uncommon to find high quality Australian wines made from Petit Verdot, Sangiovese, Tempranillo and Viognier, amongst many others.
