NV Quinta do Noval 40YO Tawny (Bottled 2013)

Post by AHB » 23:36 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Bottled 2013. Deep amber / Orange in colour; 50% opaque centre. Bananas and dried mango on the very fragrant nose. Concentrated and smooth on entry with sweet soft caramel and powerful bitter orange acidity giving a terrific balance to the wine. A touch of heat on the aftertaste then a massive wave of concentrated bitter orange acidity before a long - infinitely long concentrated bitter-sweet orange marmalade finish. Terrific port. 94/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
