2018 Quinta da Fonte Souto Branco

Post by AHB » 23:15 Thu 15 Oct 2020

From the Symington Family Estates holdings in Alentejo. Opened about 30 minutes before being drunk.

A lovely deep wine with a good roundess and butteriness to the mouthfeel; good lemon flavours and acidity keep the mouth fresh and accentuate the depth of flavour. This is a very good wine which will give a number of white Burgundies a run for their money. At £11.83 in bond or £16 duty paid, this is a wine I will happily buy more of. It went extremely well with a stir fried chicken in oyster sauce. 89/100. Drunk 15-Oct-20. Decanted ½ hour.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
