NV Morgadio da Calcada Ruby Reserve

Post by AHB » 21:53 Mon 23 Oct 2017

Soft red colour, opaque. Lovely sweet strawberries and icing sugar on the nose. Elegant and mid-weight entry with plenty of fruit and tannins delivering a great chewy palate. Good aftertaste and finish. This is a great ruby. 89/100. 24-May-17.

Morgadio de Calcada produced vintage port (vinified by Dirk Niepoort) in 2007 and 2011 and, at the time of writing this note, were undecided whether or not to release 2015.
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
