NV Quinta do Sagrado Collections 10YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 23:44 Sun 29 May 2016

Brick red, 30% opaque. Apples on the nose, stewed and sweetened with brown sugar. Sweet entry, smooth and with a good balance. Toffee apple flavours appear on the mid-palate with a good dose of apple acidity and some burnt sugar. Toffee and caramel fight with the apples on the long finish. This is a nice step up in quality from the entry level tawny. 86/100. 04-May-2016
