Honoring the history of Walter Maynard, this finest-aged tawny shows deep amber hues in the glass. Enjoy its silken texture and long, rich, nut-laden finish lightly-chilled as a pre-dinner drink or indulge in a glass when the occasion warrants.
Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cao, and Tinta Barroca. Bottled by Barao de Vilar. Maynard's history dates back to 1652 when the illustrious ancestor of the Van Zeller family became one of the first British merchants to ship Port from Oporto. Barao de Vilar – Vinhos, SA was established in January 1996 from a small stock of wine bought by Fernando Luis van Zeller and given to his sons Fernando and Alvaro. The company’s institutional name recovers a noble title granted by the Queen of Portugal D. Maria II to Cristiano Nicolau Kopke, the 1st Baron of Vilar, back in 1836, which remains, by legacy, in the family's rightful-heir possession. Before Barao de Vilar – Vinhos SA was built, the Van Zellers were owners of Quinta do Noval, one of the most iconic and renowned estates of the port-wine business sector.
