Leonor Palo Cortado


Coming back to this a good while after I last tasted it. 

The first impression is the colour – it is a light brown, orange amber – and the second is the sweet honey in the nose. To be blunt tonight the nose reminded me of a Crunchie Bar – albeit a Crunchie Bar with a bit of background alcohol. On a deeper inhale there are also notes of the fruit of a dessert wine (not a PX either).

On the palate the flavours are a bit more black treacle/toasted caramel – some nice acidity and heat. I don’t get the honey or fruit at all on the palate – although maybe a little bit in the texture – all in all it is a juicy mouthful.
