AMAZING FORTIFIED FROM THE BAROSSA
Over the years Dutschke have put together a Solera of old fortified wines. It is from this Solera that they have prepared the blend of tawny port that they call “Old Codger”.
“Old Codger Fine Old Tawny” is a blend of Verdelho, Grenache, Shiraz, Pedro, Palomino, Frontignac and Muscadelle wines from barrels that have been collecting dust in Dutschke's shed for many years. It shows great complexity and has prominent, nutty butterscotch-like flavours, a result of blending the older fortifieds with the younger fresher components. Blending using a Solera system gives consistency to the style and quality from year to year.
Aged for an average of 6 years in old oak hogsheads and smaller oak barrels.
