NV Barao de Vilar 150YO Tawny

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

Cask sample shown by Fernando van Zeller. A different blend of 1843, 1870 and 1888. Deep chestnut red centre with an olive rim. Fresher on the nose, balanced palate but retaining the intensity. Sipping Port. 96/100. 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.
