NV Ferreira 20 year old tawny

Post by AHB » 21:57 Mon 16 Jul 2012

The top of the Ferreira tawny range and lighter in colour than the 10 yo or Tawny Reserve shown alongside, 40% opaque. Distinct tawny nose, with soft VA and ripe apricots. Lovely texture, full of dried fruits and apricots and with a hint of the tawny VA. Enormously long finish. This is a fine 20 yo. 87/100. 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 20Y tawny. Orange, 30% opaque. Much richer more mature tawny. Big and mouthfilling. Vanilla? Serious tawny. Buy.
