NV Ferreira 20YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 22:49 Tue 31 Oct 2017

Drunk at the Ferreira Lodge. Bottled 2016. Orange ochre colour, 20% opaque. Some gentle VA shows on the nose, soft and attractive. The port is sweet and focused on entry, thick in texture with lots of sweet candied orange on the palate. The lovely balance and very soft tannins combine to give a lovely lingering finish of soft red apples and brittle red toffee. 90/100. 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
