Fox Run Vineyards holds a special place in their heart for fortified wines. This was a speciality winemaker Peter Bell focused on while studying to become a winemaker. This gift basket is sure to please with a collection of traditional and modern style port wines. Included in this gift set is Fine Old Tawny Port and our ruby-style Port.
Port: This sweet fortified wine bursts with blackberry, blueberry and plum aromas. Its mouthfeel is all about velvet and fire. This wine serves as its own dessert, but is also rewarding with nuts, blue-veined cheeses and simple cakes.
Fine Old Tawny Port: The current-release Tawny Port blend is a rich mélange of date, fig, dried apricot, dark chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg and toffee. As the flavors evolve in the mouth, notes of oolong tea, roasted almond and marmalade appear. This wine pairs spectacularly with anything sweet and gooey, but please try it with creamy blue cheese or smoked almonds. You can’t imagine how good these tastes are together. Pungent, salty food juxtaposed against sweet, silky tawny is unforgettably delicious. Don’t miss this limited release.
