NV Ferreira 20YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 22:52 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Deep chestnut brown in colour, 60% opaque. Restrained on the nose, showing a little VA and furniture polish. Medium in texture, slow to deliver on the palate but on the mid-palate there is a nice acidity that keeps the freshness and allows a vibrant olive and kumquat flavour to fill the mouth. The aftertaste is huge, full of bitter-sweet Seville orange. The finish is long and sticky that fades very slowly, A lovely sweet tawny port. 90/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
