NV Barros 20YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 12:44 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Ochre orange in colour; 10% opaque. Ground pistachio on the nose, infused with orange blossom. Nice texture and a nice complexity with a good honey sweetness wrapped around soft, dry dates. Great palate development with a lovely fragrance. A significant step up in quality from the Barros 10YO tawny. 88/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
