1976 Quinta do Noval Colheita (bottled 2017)

Post by AHB » 09:54 Fri 05 Jan 2018

Bottled 2017. A deep amber colour with a lovely nose of warm almond biscuits. Sweet and smooth with lots of tobacco and a great dose of acidity that shows mainly on the aftertaste. The palate is thick and sweet, very lively with lots of lime and tobacco. The aftertaste is big and full of oranges and sweet honey. 05-Dec-17. Decanted 2 hours.
