NV Barao de Vilar 30YO Tawny

Post by AHB » 22:15 Thu 26 May 2016

Pale orange colour, 10% opaque. Unattractive nose, restrained and a touch of resin. Light entry with subtle hints of honey. The palate develops a little to bring out the honey and some lemon. Air adds more honey. The aftertaste is dominated by lime acidity giving a clean finish of long duration. 88/100. 22-Apr-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)
