Pereira D'Oliveiras


Boal Medium Sweet Frasqueira (bottled 2014, 46yo) 1968


Very deep nose is integral it's almost impossible to divine wine into words, this is older and better than I am. Cigars come to mind ... adobe, a road, 3 little pigs, bricks and straw, I don't know. A wine of very quiet power, the amalgam of wood, great spice, acidity and sweetness goes 'piff' in the mouth and is never any one thing or in any one place. Literally, ethereal.
