This wine is from Portugal, Duriense region, Douro - Porto sub-region. An incredible example of an old Tawny port. A rarity, as few houses will make a 40 year old tawny. This wine is olive gold in colour with rich caramel, butterscotch, hazelnut flavours. The concentration in this port also produces a wine with amazing length, which lingers beautifully in the palate.. The 40-Year Old Tawny (2017 bottling) has a lifted bouquet of marmalade, clove and singed leather, quite deep with hints of dried quince coming through. The palate is lively and vibrant on the entry, quite spicy with clove and ginger, very cohesive although I just miss that lovely nutty finish that is offered by its 30-Year Old counterpart. Tasted at the Big Fortified Tasting in London.
This wine has reached Tawny nirvana, all of its elements in harmony, its age a ghost of red fruit, its alcohol transformed into texture. It doesn't suffer from oxidation, though it buzzes with richness, the flavors lasting on silken orange and fresh almond. Rather than the heat of Douro schist in August, it has the cool stoniness of the cellar where it evolved. Saturated with pleasure.
100 BEST WINES 2017 -. Olive bronze in color, this is an exotic, intense old tawny with layers of penetrating aromas and flavors of caramel, burnt sugar, chocolate, toffee, nuts and toasted spice in a dense, luxuriantly textured palate which is underscored by a fine, elegant acidic backbone.
