NV Ferreira Tawny Reserve

Post by AHB » 22:44 Tue 31 Oct 2017

The Dona Antonia Tawny Reserva. Drunk at the Ferreira Lodge. Average age of the wines is around 8 years.

Brick red colour, about 20% opaque. Slightly baked fruit on the nose with the baked impression carrying on to the palate as a slightly burnt rhubarb. Gentle and soft finish of brown sugar. Pleasant enough. 85/100. 22-Jun-17. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
