NV Quinta da Devesa 10YO Tawny (bottled 2019)

Post by Alex Bridgeman » 19:36 Sun 20 Jun 2021

Bottled 2019. Deep rich colour, a dark bronze; 30% opaque. Bright and vibrant nose, marzipan and pistachio combined with a lovely red apple; very fragrant. Slightly thick texture with generous honey and cinder toffee; a little burnt toast at the edges but there is good acidity which ensures the palate stays balanced and fresh. Big and rich aftertaste, full of cinder toffee and honey. The finish is intense and concentrated, and has an amazing length. 91/100. Tasted 10-Apr-21.
