Description

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.

The grapes for the Offley Tawny Port are sourced from prime vineyard sites in the Cima Corgo and Baixo Corgo sub-region. The Douro is the largest mountainous vineyard area on earth and vines are planted on steep terraces sloping down to the Douro river, many of which are supported by ancient, UNESCO-world-heritage-protected, dry stone walls. Given the steep gradients and the inaccessibility for machinery, vineyard operations and harvesting are carried out by hand. Soils in the Douro are composed of a dense, slate-like, metamorphic rock called schist. In the Douro, the schist fractures vertically, allowing the vine roots to delve deep to access water and nutrients to sustain them through the hot Douro summers. The poor quality of the soil means that the vines produce low yields - on average 1.5kg of grapes per vine - of intensely concentrated fruit, packed with flavor.
The Offley Tawny Port has an attractive red-tawny hue. It has a delicate aroma reminiscent of ripe red fruit, enhanced by nutty notes from wood aging. On the palate, the fine balance between soft tannins, vibrant acidity and natural sweetness leads to a harmonious and elegant finish.
