NV do Presidente 10YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 23:06 Sat 27 Jun 2015

do Presidente 10 yo tawny NV from Alpalina. Deep orange colour, 30% opaque. A lovely nose of colheita style oxidative aging - balanced and attractive. Sweet smooth entry with a nice thick texture. Lovely burnt sugar and toasted brioche palate. A delicious mid-palate that is light and floral with good sweetness, good poise and good balance. Lovely finish. A very impressive 10 year old tawny assembled from wines purchased from local port makers based around Vila Real. 88/100. May 2015.
