NV Quinta do Mourao Tawny 20YO (S. Leonardo) (bottled 2022)

Post by winesecretary »

Open 30 mins.

A light brownish red, not in the least opaque. Viscous with thick gooey legs.

Nose of tea-poached figs and rose turkish delight with icing sugar.

Very sugary entry. Tastes at first almost like a white port, all wood.

Given lots of air through the teeth, leather and nuts on the finish and a decent lick of acidity.

A bit disappointing, this one, at first, but it is growing on me.
