Lavet på druer der komme fra marker, som ligger lige ned til Douro.
Eksklusiv med en sød friskhed, der udviser stor elegance. Delikat nøddeagtig aroma med et strejf af tørrede frugter, figner og moden blomme. Meget velafbalanceret på ganen og lang eftersmag, der afsluttes med et diskret svirp på tungespidsen af friskhed.
ROY HERSH IN THE JUNE 2012 VOL. 9, ISSUE #70 OF THE “FOR THE LOVE OF PORT” – Vieira de Sousa 10 Year Old Tawny Port – Bottled 2011. Old school Tawny with some “Douro bake” evident on the nose, in a good way, (but not over-the-top) along with figs, prunes and stewed fruits. It is extremely tasty, but light in acidity and has just enough to carry the sweetness of the sultana, cinnamon stick and date flavors. Texturally silky soft and very easy to sip on, this Tawny is a blast-from-the-past stylistically, with some rusticity and freshness as well. The average age of the blend lies between 12-15 years. Nicely done! I had this again with Luis Seabra and a few guests from the Fortification Tour a few nights later and everybody was seriously enthused by the distinctive character of this 10 Year Old. 92 points 6/2/12
