Galway Pipe Grand Tawy Port

  • $33.00

Galway Pipe Grand Tawny 12 year old Port is named after Governor Sir Henry Galway, governor of South Australia from 1914-1920. Governor Galway was a frequent visitor to the winery and on each visit he would conduct a tasting of the finest "pipes" (500L barrels) of port. Whichever pipe was most to his liking was inscribed as "Galway's Pipe" and that particular blend was used exclusively at Government House.

Winemaker Notes

Several Red varieties including Shiraz and Tokay are sourced and blended to produce this special wine. Fermented and aged in oak for an average of 12 years this wine is a rich garnet colour with a distinct tawny character aroma with raisins, dried pears, grilled nuts and spicy, dusty oak. On the palate the wine has balanced sweetness complemented by a good level of fresh acidity. This results in a wine that has a pronounced aged character, whilst still maintaining a freshness, with a long dry finish.
