Messias Port, 2008

10 Year Old White Port

*** 90 pts Robert Parker ***

An individual and distinct White Port, made by Messias as a result of the exceptional quality of a few parcels of old White Ports.

Dry golden white colour. On the nose stand out vanilla and spice notes, allied to a floral touch. The palate confirms all these aromas, combining a subtle wood and a good acidity confer unique characteristics to this wine, which has a long and pleasant aftertaste. *Robert Parker's Wine Advocate*

A fairly rare style of port, the 10 years old white is characterised by skin contact and oxidative maturation. It is made in the same way as aged tawnies, with slow aging in pipes in the Messias lodges.

*** 95 Points Decanter Magazine ***
Very pale amber/tawny/orange colour. Fine and delicate aromas of hazelnuts and candied citrus. Quince marmalade character, delicate in style, with finesse and poise. Seemingly quite dry in style towards the finish (not as obviously rich as some here), and supremely refined. 18.5pts/20 (95/100pts)
