1963 Ferreira vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:23 Sun 14 Jun 2009

Opened as part of the Wokingham offline on 11 June 2009.

Ullaged to low shoulder. Very light colour, the palest of the wines being tasted. Some bottle stink on the nose which overwhelms most other smells. In the mouth this is thickly textured and very sweet. Perhaps a little simple, but showing sweet and floral flavours. Very mature, refined and elegant but not showing much. Aftertaste is very muted but the length develops quietly. Enjoyable and elegant, likely to hold for a decade. 82/100.
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
