"Nectar! Fabulous tawny with an abundance of fruit aromas, perfectly balanced rancio notes, lovely old nutty oak, drying tannins, excellent spirit and cleansing acidity on a long, lingering finish." - 5 Stars, Winestate, Sweet and Fortified Tasting, June 2009

"De Bortoli is particularly strong in premium fortified wines with a very good portfolio consisting of an old Tawny style with an average age 21 years called Old Boys which has recently had a label makeover and is enormously popular both here at home in Australia and overseas." - Michael Kotevski, Liquor Watch, June 2007

“A small coterie of wines stepped into the luxury circle. Among them is the De Bortoli Old Boys 21 Years Old Tawny from Australia, with ultra smooth roasted nuts and pekoe flavours. Ports are one of Australia's best kept secrets.” - 91 Points, Gord Stimmell, thestar.com (Canada), March 2008

expert reviews about

De Bortoli Old Boys Tawny Port

Expert Reviews

James Halliday says
Pale, clear, bright tawny colour; a tangy tawny port style, less sweet than many; the age is in fact considerable.
Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007

WINESTATE says
Elegant, classical tawny smelling of raisins and vanilla. Fresh and complex palate with some great toasty oak and slight tarry elements.
