1955 Burmester Colheita

Post by AHB » 20:57 Wed 04 Oct 2017

Bottled 1979. Pale amber colour with a green rim; 20% opaque. Gentle toffee on the nose, with lots of VA suggesting this is a wood aged port. Toffee and coffee on the start of the palate, but in a light and gentle way. Delicate texture and light honey flavours on the palate; a very dry style of port. Big on the aftertaste, which is dry and slightly bitter, before a long finish of slightly dry damsons. Served blind, this was guessed to be a bottle of Niepoort 1977 Garrafeira. 87/100. Pop 'n' pour. Drunk 28 September 2017.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
