NV Casa Santa Eufemia white port

Post by AHB » 14:00 Sat 10 Sep 2016

Served by the glass at Taberna, Spitalfields Market. Bottled in 2016. From the 1973 vintage.

Dark orange colour, 20% opaque, but with a hint of greening on the rim. Soft caramel on the nose, with a strong twist of singed orange peel. Smooth entry, full of acidity that brings powerful focus to the orange and lemon flavours. Mouth filling and huge in flavour. Massive aftertaste of burnt oranges with burnt sugar and a never-ending finish. Superb and huge. Drunk 10 Sep 2016. 94/100.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
