1982 Smith Woodhouse LBV

Sweet fruit on the nose, attractive and delicious. Smooth and balanced on the palate, packed with elegant fruit. This grows on the palate and delivers a lovely and complex palate. Light and lively with great balance. Fruity but with a fresh green edge. The finish is enjoyable; this is a lovely port that is mature but not in need of drinking any time soon. 91/100. 17-Mar-16.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994
