1960 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 09:13 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Bronzed red colour, mature appearance; clear and attractive, 80% opaque. A huge nose that is big and powerful, full of jellied fruit. Smooth on the palate, soft and rounded fruit which develops well on the palateto give a fruit led, slightly dry strawberry tone elevated by some dusty library book tannins. A lovely fruit-led aftertaste with a long and dry but flavoursome finish. This is a delicious and mouthfilling port. 91/100. Drunk 25-Sep-16. Decanted ½ hour.

2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
