Partial fermentation occurs on skins prior to pressing and fortification using a neutral grape spirit, leaving a sweet wine of around 20% v/v. Each year our 26 rows of Portuguese grape varietals are harvested for co-fermentation. After fortification this wine is clarified then transferred into barrels and casks of different volumes for several years (anything between three and thirty). It is this maturation process that concentrates the wines and produces the rich complex flavours. As the wines mature, the red and purple colours of the wine turn orange and brown. These parcels of varying ages are then blended together prior to bottling to create a wine ready to drink now.

Our Pfeiffer Rare Rutherglen Tawny is blended from our very best parcels, made in only the best vintages that have been matured in the best possible barrels. This creates an exquisite wine, of outstanding quality, remarkable depth and wonderful persistence.

The Pfeiffer Rare Rutherglen Tawny has a complex nose of roasted nuts and vanilla. The palate is intense with concentrated, aged characters, dried fruit flavours and a lovely, nutty persistence.

Salty, dry, hard cheeses, such as Parmigiano Reggiano, Comté or Pecorino or step outside the box and try it with grilled mango.
