Question: Should I serve my Vintage Port and Tawny Port at the same temperature?
Answer: You could but I wouldn’t. Both types should be served not too cold to mask the bouquet and the flavours nor too warm as the alcohol of 20 degrees will show too prominently. It is a personal choice as to the exact temperature that suits you best for both but most of us prefer Tawny port to be served at a couple of degrees centigrade cooler (say around 10-16) than our Vintage Port (between 12-18). I prefer the lower end of the range for both. Enjoy.
