Maynard’s – 40 Year’s Old – Tawny Porto

Maynard’s – 40 Year’s Old – Tawny Porto

The nose is elegant, fine and offers a small concentration. It reveals notes of plum, fruit in syrup, candied orange zest and slight notes of prune associated with fine notes of caramel, a discreet note of candied lemon and fine notes of dried fruit. The palate is fruity, gourmand, fine, elegant and offers a beautiful small acid frame in the background. In the mouth this Porto expresses notes of candied citrus (lemon, clementine) associated with fine notes of candied white fruit (apple, peach), a touch of plum, honey, a discreet hint of candied lemon zest, spices and nuts / dried fruit. Good length. The finish is relatively rich.
