NV Quinta da Devesa 10YO Tawny (bottled 2019)

Post by Alex Bridgeman » 19:35 Sun 20 Jun 2021

Bottled in 2019. Polished red cedar in colour. Delicious toffee and caramel nose, sweet and slight floral perfume. Slight lavender polish on the palate, a touch of bitterness balancing the late caramel; great levels of acidity with the honey and cranberry all combining to give a wonderful full and rich palate. Sweet, honeyed aftertaste and lovely cinder toffee and caramel finish. Lovely, lovely Port. 92/100. Drunk 27-Jan-21, Decanted 1 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)
