NV Sandeman 20YO Tawny (Bottled 2012)

Post by AHB » 00:03 Sat 13 Apr 2013

Bottled 2012. Golden red in colour; 40% opaque. On the nose this is dominated by nail varnish. Sweet on entry, mid-weight, and with a lovely freshness on the palate coming from the gentle acidity. Soft and gentle on the palate, with sweet citrus dominating. Lovely aftertaste, with a tingling finish and a modest but light length. 84/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Oh I had this last night as well. Less ethyl acetate on the nose but agree it is a lightweight, elegant style. Nice walnut rancio finish of moderate length. Good from me.
