NV Cockburn Fine White

Post by AHB » 22:05 Sat 02 Jul 2016

Golden yellow colour, 10% opaque. Interesting nose of beeswax polish and lavender oil, pronounced and well developed. Oily texture on the palate, a little pepper heat then generous peaches in light syrup. Hot on the aftertaste with a generous showing of slightly bitter grapefruit oil. A shade cloying on the end of the finish. 85/100. 27-Jun-16. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
