From Barao de Vilar. Olive brown colour, 20% opaque. Pistachio paste on the nose, lots of VA. Rounded entry, balanced and focused to deliver a nice mouthfeel and an enjoyable freshness. Deliciious aftertaste and a finish of citrus acidity that really delivers. An elegant tawny. 90/100. 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)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
