NV Ferreira Dona Antonia reserve tawny

Post by AHB » 23:09 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Dona Antonia Reserve Tawny. Brick red in colour with a slight orange rim. A little gentle VA in the glass and a hint of plasticizer. Nice texture on entry, then a powerful wave of fruit and acidity. The acidity dominates and focuses the mid- and late-palate. Lovely flavoursome sensations on the aftertaste and finish. Rather a powerhouse compared to the Sandeman tawny. 87/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
