NV Ferreira Reserve White

Post by AHB » 22:50 Tue 31 Oct 2017

The Dona Antonia Branco Reserva. Drunk at the Ferreira Lodge. Average age of the wines is around 6 years with the wine being aged in balseiros; about EUR12.

Pale orange in colour, only 10% opaque. Slight plastic tones on the nose, mixed in with sweet apricots. Thick in texture with a great palate presence. Lots of orange blossom honey on the smooth, languid palate with hints of tannins and great balancing acidity. Really delicious. 88/100. 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
