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 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
