Saltram Mr Pickwick's Tawny Port

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Mr Pickwicks has been a bit of a family favourite for a few generations, and one sip will tell you why. It's full of fruitcake, dark chocolate and roasted nuts on the nose, whilst the palate is full, plush and smooth, with well-judged sweetness, generous dried fruit tastes, some bright acidity adding some freshness, and a smooth, mellow, lush finish. Great with coffee and a slice of dundee cake.

Winemaker's Notes

Mr Pickwick's is widely regarded as one of Australia's definitive tawny styles. Its average age of more than 20 years makes it unique among fortified wines consistently available on a commercial basis. Mr Pickwick's has the softness and mellow spirit that can only come from great age, premium base material and the very best in fortifying spirit - in this case, old brandy.

Appearance: Pale amber brown, suggesting great age and complexity.

Nose: On the nose there are complex fruit and rancio qualities. The concentrated, mature nose has a freshness and lift belying an average of more than 20 years.

Palate: On the palate the wine is intense and concentrated and quite luscious, with a great richness, texture and mouthfilling flavour. Its excellent and mature spirit add to the depth and intrigue presented by such old, rare tawny.

Cellaring: Mr Pickwick's is blended to drink on release but can be kept for consumption after opening.

Alcohol: 19%
