Quinta dos Murças was bought "a few years ago" by Herdade do Esporao. This 10 yo tawny was bottled in 2013. Copper red in colour, 30% opaque. Chilled, showing little on the nose, very subdued. Sweet and gentle entry, a touch watery in texture and with a light palate of walnuts and quince paste. Very mild flavour profile but with a nice balance. Thoroughly inoffensive but there are better 10 yo tawnies. As an aside, it was mentioned that Murcas made a vintage port in 2011. 84/100. May 2015.
