Quinta do Vallado – 40 Years Old Tawny – Porto

Quinta do Vallado – 40 Years Old Tawny – Porto

The nose is elegant, aromatic, precise and offers a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of dried orange, potpourri and small notes of rancio associated with touches of dried lemon, dried blackberry, dried strawberry as well as hints of rancio, toasted oak, gray pepper and very discreet hints of almond. The palate is fruity, suave, fat, well-balanced (full of balance) and offers a beautiful guideline, a beautiful tension, a beautiful finesse as well as a fine acidulous frame. On the palate this Porto expresses notes of caramelized lemon, orange jam and small notes of pâtisseries associated with fine touches of strawberry jam, blackberry as well as discreet hints of caramelized peach, date, chocolate, cedarwood and caramelized cream/crème brûlée. Good length and beautiful persistence.
