Tasting notes

Aroma: This extraordinary Port Wine stands out immediately for its extremely seductive colour, reminiscent of mahogany, with hints of green when stirred, an evident sign of its age. Its aroma is tremendously complex and rich, with numerous nuances of dried fruits – figs and plums -, vinegar, iodine and spices. It has a very fresh, persistent and harmonious finish.

Taste: The palate confirms and reaffirms the remarkable freshness promised by the nose. Even though the wine is extremely rich, unctuous, concentrated and dense, it ends with a perfectly balanced acidity that provides an explosive and never-ending finish, as though the wine refuses to leave. At the very end it provides an irresistible acidity.

“Gorgeous and alluring, with dark toffee, toasted sesame, allspice and cardamom notes that resemble a PX Sherry, only with a less viscous mouthfeel and a much finer edge throughout. The back end pulls in hints of ginger, green tea and powered clove, imparting lift and cut through the extremely long and suave finish. The mouthfeel is sublime.”
