NV Quinta das Tecedeiras Tawny Reserve

Post by AHB » 21:52 Sun 29 May 2016

Quinta das Tecedeiras. Brown-red colour, 40% opaque. Gentle colheita-style nose with lots of marzipan. Thick in texture with intense acidity, searing in its fierceness fighting with black treacle sweetness. Dates and dried figs on the palate. Too acidic to be balanced, more like a madeira in style. 82/100. 22-Apr-16
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
