NV Quinta da Pedra Alta tawny

Post by AHB » 10:17 Sun 28 Jun 2015

The colour of rusty iron, 30% opaque. Nose of toffee; sweet on the palate but with little complexity. Modest but enjoyable aftertaste. I was told that this wine had an average age of around 3 years. It was perfectly acceptable but there are many better tawnies.

Pedra Alta is located on the south side of the river opposite Pinhao. Within the quinta boundary there is one of the original feitora. 81/100. June 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
