NV Quinta de Santa Eufemia 20YO White

NV Quinta de Santa Eufémia 20 Year Old White
Drunk at Vinologia in Oporto, May 2009,

Bottled in an attractive 50cl clear bottle. In a nice touch, the 10-year-old has bronze metalic printing, the 20-year-old silver and the 30-year-old gold. In a nicer touch, the label also has braille!

A lovely light caramel colour; this port shows that it has seen some time in wood. Unfortunately, that was the best bit about this. On the nose, very similar to the 10-year-old, but with the nuts a little stronger. On the palate, extremely dry and with almost no fruit. I don't think this is up to the standards of the 10 and 30 year olds. It's certainly the worst of the three. I recommend it be drunk very cold!
