NV Barao de Vilar 35th Anniversary Tawny

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

Cask sample. A blend made to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the company in 2019.

Gentle olive brown. Nutty character. Fresh with an olive bite. Nicely balanced with good development. Mouth-filling finish with a lovely mintiness and a touch of cinder toffee. 90/100. Tasted 08-Feb-22.
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.
