1980 Ferreira

Decanter #14: Ferreira. Mid-red, and quite translucent. Nosing of lovely red fruit, and yellow melon. But this transformed in the mouth to cherry, though, unusually, cherry without candy. THRA thought that it “lacks substance”. The melon led me to guessing Nacional: but actually Ferreira! Topsy-turvy rankings.

Good healthy red colour with an orange rim and transparent centre. Woody nose, of fresh sawdust, mixed with delicate rose-hips. Good density in the mouth with lovely elegance but a little hollow in the middle. Wonderful aftertaste with excellent variations and phases during the long length. Very enjoyable and drinking at its peak today. 90/100.

My note:

A little pale and lacking in substance, but this was nevertheless a good quaff, ranking sixh in my personal order of preference.

In my line-up of guesses, I knew that a Taylor would be somewhere on the table, but was struggling to work out which it was. In the event I guessed Taylor for Ferreira - and vice versa.
