NV Ferreira Dona Antonia reserve tawny

Post by AHB » 21:54 Mon 16 Jul 2012

Dona Antonia Reserve Tawny. Deep red in colour, bricking rim. Little showing on the nose and a rather hollow entry but with a strong acidity and a suprising dose of soft tannins. The late palate fruit shows nicely and delivers some good levels of complexity. The flavours on the finish are soft and gentle. Perfectly pleasant. 84/100. 13-Jun-12.
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
