1990 Barao de Vilar colheita

Post by AHB » 22:14 Thu 26 May 2016

Pale barley-sugar orange, 10% opaque. Faint on the nose, offering hints of being a colheita port. Lovely texture, full of flavour on the palate: delicious, youthful and lively yet with a good balance. A huge finish. A relatively light style of colheita, very sweet but still attractive. 87/100. 22-Apr-16.
