Hardys Whiskers Blake Tawny Port
|Region||Australia, South Eastern Australia|
Wine EnthusiastThis amber-hued Tawny shows subtle notes of lemon, orange, toffee and walnut with a herbal undertone. The palate is more lifted and lighter than you might expect, although the alcohol feels little hot and the finish is short and, quite literally, sweet.
International Wine CellarPinkish amber. Spicy redcurrant and toffee aromas are complicated by orange peel, molasses and fresh rose. A delicate and nicely focused tawny with toffeed apple and pear flavors and an exotic blood orange quality emerging on the back. This rather understated port shows good finishing lift and a lingering salted caramel character.
Wine SpectatorSweet and silky, balancing its roasted hazelnut, coffee and bitter chocolate flavors with a thread of cherry. The finish lingers gently.
