Product Description

Galway Pipe Fine Old Tawny Port - Aged 12 years

Fermented and aged in oak for an average of 12 years this superior tawny displays aromas of toffee, raisins, grilled nuts and spicy oak.

Area: South East of South Australia


Tasting 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.

Galway Pipe 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 wouldconduct 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.

Please note that gifts containing alcohol can only be sold and delivered to persons over 18 years of age.
