NV Churchill 20YO Tawny

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

Bottled 2019. Copper-red colour, quite pale at around 40% opaque. Roasted almonds and red toffee on the nose. Nicely balanced palate, a little beeswax and a touch of tannin providing a little grip. Nutty flavours, a little cinnamon drops on the palate; sweet but well balanced. Cinnamon drops on the aftertaste, which fills the tastebuds well; slowly fading cinnamon drops finish, ending with a little red toffee and clove. Balanced, uncomplicated and straightforward. 87/100. 22-Jan-22. Decanted 2 days.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.
