NV Quinta do Infantado 10YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 17:27 Sun 22 Oct 2017

A half bottle behind the bar at the Horse & Groom pub-restaurant in Upper Oddington, Cotswolds.

Bronzed red in colour, 40% opaque. Distinct toffee apples on the nose, hard red toffee and a delicious smelling apple acidity. Burnt sugar on entry and through the mid-palate; lots of acidity amongst the burnt sugar. A very nice fragrance on the mid and late-palate. A nice mouthful, although the acidity burns on the aftertaste but allows a lovely nutty, toffee finish to take over and last very well. An impressive 10YO Tawny. 87/100. Drunk 29-Apr-17.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
