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 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
