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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
