NV Messias Special Reserve

Post by AHB » 12:16 Sun 15 Mar 2015

The Messias Special Reserve is blended tawny port. A mature amber-orange in colour, 30% opaque. Nosing of gentle nuts and quince paste this has a smooth texture on the palate and a nice acidic structure that balances a gentle honey sweetness and gives a citrus core. Tasty and lingering, there is a nice twist of clover honey on the finish. 85/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
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
