NV Confraria do Vinho do Porto White Port

Post by AHB » 21:30 Sat 02 Jul 2016

Bottled 2014. Drunk at the Confraria do Vinho do Porto inauguration ceremony, this is the blended port made from contributions from members.

Deep lemon yellow colour, 20% opaque. Honey and lemon nose, slightly heavy. Slightly waxy texture with bitter lemon oil dominating the flavours. Good body. Harsh and hot aftertaste, with a sweet onion finish of good length. 83/100. 26-Jun-2016.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
