BouquetButterscotch, crème caramel, dried fruit raisin and some dark chocolate.Score range17.40 - 17.40
TasteMedium body. Mature and of course peaking but not old in taste. It was balanced and hold together. Quite elegant and very tasty with crème caramel and butterscotch dominated. Quite dry with a nice acidity and a quite attractive finish. Very easy to drink and enjoy. An astonishing bottle indeed!Average score

CommentAt home with the family George proprietor and exporter was a trade mark in Villa Nova de Gaya and London.
We believe that that label stating Red means that it was a late bottled vintage but of course we do not know. Anyhow it tasted as an old vintage should and not as a colheita.
