Quinta De La Rosa Tonel No12 10yr Tawny Port & Dark Truffles 135g
Pairing chocolate and port can be a challenge that most are not prepared to face, but it can also be one of the most extraordinary gastronomic experiences of your life. Dark chocolate due to its lower sweetness levels can enhance the fruit flavours of the port and create a marvellous tension between the tannic finish of a port and the bitter finish of the chocolate. Whether you’re a full on port lover or an adventurous foodie this is a pairing you just can’t say no to!

that they blend their Tonel 12. This blending occurs on a regular basis to ensure that stocks are always fresh. For many years, before 1988, when they started selling port under the La Rosa brand, the Bergqvist family used to go down to 'Tonel 12' (a large 25 pipe barrel kept in the lodge under the house) and fill their decanter full of delicious ten year old tawny direct from the barrel. To this day they still refer to Tonel 12, instead of ten year old tawny, and decided to keep the name on the label.
Charbonnel & Walker Truffles - a perfect match for fine red wines. Dark Marc de Champagne Truffles are lightly dusted with cocoa with a delicious Champagne truffle centre - mixed with a little rum. Marc de champagne is a clear liquor distilled from the pomace of pressed champagne grapes and is part of the secret ingredient of the delicate scent and unique flavour of Charbonnel & Walker's creamy Marc de Champagne truffles.
