1940’s Oloroso Viejísimo Sherry M. Ant. De La Riva 1940’s (1/2 Bottle)

Nose: it’s remarkable that after so many years you stil get the aromatic hint of polished wood up front. It seems so volatile and it’s usually something I’m missing in old bottles. My guess would be Oloroso then. Remarkably, when taken through a coffee filter this shows its heady side, with wood polish, leather and dried fruits (figs, even some raspberry ganache) but the more particles you leave in the glass, the more it shows toffee notes, coffee and Mokatine candy. In any case this is still quite vibrant, and it kept unfolding throughout the evening. Mouth: pretty perfect, albeit perhaps a little soft due to the bottle ageing. There’s plenty of dried fruits, toasted nuts (hazelnut, pecan pie) with subtle burnt caramel and a hint of herbal tea. It seems lightly abocado (with a touch of sweet wine added to it) which isn’t surprising coming from this era, especially when the wine was really old already. There’s quite some acidity to balance this anyway. Stunning wine, with a long finish on dried fruits, a faint bitter touch and this mocha note again. Drink now - 2040.
