Tasting Notes

2012 tasting note year

Shaped by a hot, dry summer, with welcome sporadic rain during the vintage; mature brick-red to amber color; open but looking dry and fragile, with a touch of roasted coffee bean on the palate (characteristic of a hot, dry year) and roasted nuts, with an affinity to an old Tawny, fine and delicate, still sweet but drying on the finish.  Drink fairly soon.

Score: 14.5/20

The 1965 was delicious, much more full bodied & weighty than the ’58 and would clearly have been the star of the night but for the surprising 1958. I know the ’65 reasonably well, it’s a superb wine, beautifully balanced with all the elegance of a fully mature old Vintage Port and more than confirms the fact that Malvedos is superb vintage port in its own right.

Good mid-deep colour, thin brown rim; quite dense, opulent with scent emerging, suggests this wine may have more to give; rich, opulent and mouthfilling, lovely sweet, spicy fruit with good tannic grip, figs and prunes on the finish.

Score: 4 Stars

Deep garnet colour. On the nose perfumed and soft, with a touch of rose petals and a hint of mint at the end. On the palate soft and mellow, with fine tannins and a luscious and long lasting finish.

Deep red with a garnet rim, light aromas of tomato, earth and berries, medium-bodied, with sweet, velvety fruit flavours and a short finish.
