Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

Ports are a fortified wine that are typically richer, sweeter, heavier in body, and possess a higher alcohol content than unfortified wines. This is due to the addition of distilled grape spirits that are added to halt fermentation before all the sugar is converted to alcohol and results in a wine that is usually 18% to 20% alcohol. This Tawny Port is at 18.5% alcohol.
