NV Ferreira 10 year old tawny

Post by AHB » 21:55 Mon 16 Jul 2012

Mature red colour, with a bricking centre. Restrained, but attractive on the nose. A refined citrus acidity covers the palate with a depth of orange flavours before a long, burnt sugar finish takes hold. Fine tawny port. 85/100. 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

Fr 10Y tawny. Red-orange, 30% opaque. A hint lighter than the Dona Antonia. Softer, but I prefer the cheaper one.
