Dow’s is entirely owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Symington family, Port producers since the 19th Century. The family, whose experience dates back over 100 years, has supervised all the vineyards, winemaking and the ageing of this wine.
Dow’s owns two of the Douro’s finest Quintas, Senhora da Ribeira and Bomfim. These were acquired in 1890 and 1896, making Dow’s one of the first houses to invest in premium vineyards.
Dow’s Fine Tawny is a three-year-old blend aged in small oak casks at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia. The barrel ageing produces a smoother and lighter style of wine than the Dow’s Ruby which is aged primarily in large oak vats and tonels. Dow’s Tawny combines subtle fruit with delicious velvety nutty flavours derived from the cask ageing. It is ready to drink and enjoy when bottled and does not require further ageing.
Serve slightly chilled in hot weather.
Appealing tawny colour. Dow’s Fine Tawny manages to combine velvety smooth nutty and caramel aromas with delicious ripe fruit such as apricots, with hints of raisins. On the palate fresh, well balanced and with a long and slightly dry finish.
“Dow’s wines are a personal favourite of mine, they are made in a dry, often austere style which seems to add an extra dimension to their depth and intensity of fruit”.
Richard Mayson, Portugal's Wines and Wine Makers
