Athens Wine Event, August 2012; 8/25/2012-8/26/2012 (Athens, Greece): Had by the glass as it matched our desert and this must have been opened for a while so TN should be adjusted. Light, clear on the colour front. On the nose it had a strong eau de vie like nose, sharp and dominant alcohol notes. Light anise notes too. On the palate it is closer to an a easy red port with a bit of age but in general we were not impressed
Nice pale golden color with thickness visible when poured. Peach and apricot on the nose with a little dusty earth and a herbal note that may come out more as it warms. Thick in the mouth with a medium acidity and some alcohol heat on the finish. I would call it sweet but not as much as a ruby port. The flavors are subtle with peach and apricot showing again mixed with some white flowers and a lightly bitter finish. Not the best white Port I've had and yet tasty. 3/5
