NV Cockburn 20YO Tawny (bottled 2015)

Post by AHB » 22:03 Sat 02 Jul 2016

Drunk at lunch at Canais. Bottled 2015. A wonderful golden ochre colour, 30% opaque. Orange flowers and toffee on the nose. Toffee on the palate, thick in texture with good levels of acidity. Powerful date, honey and lime on the mid-palate, tasty and delicious. Lime dominates the aftertaste with a slight bitter edge to the honey finish. 88/100. 27-Jun-16. Pop 'n' pour.
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
