NV Quinta do Noval 40YO Tawny

NV Noval 40 year old tawny
Btw what's the standard naming convention for our tawny notes?

yr? Year? year? with or without the old?

Garnet with a touch of brown throughout.

The nose reminds me of freshly grated orange peels with hints of nutmeg and sherry.

A surprisingly heavy body with notes of a fine malmsey madeira. Brown sugared cranberries, lemon drop round out a very smooth body showing no signs of heat at all.

92.
