1974 Quevedo colheita

Post by AHB » 21:46 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Drunk at Quevedo's Quinta Santa Rosario with Oscar and Claudia Quevedo and Christian Gollnick. Bottled 2013. Deep peach in colour with just a hint of green on the rim; 20% opaque. Subdued on the nose, bringing pleasant varnish and wood oils. Lovely toasted nuts and sesame seed entry; adding air opens up the palate to allow honey and Mediterranean herbs to show through. A wonderful chewy finish. This is refined, elegant and slightly sweet and saves its punch to the finish.

Wine of the night votes gave 12 points to this wine (out of 18), 11 to the Dalva 1985 colheita and 5 to each of the Kopke 1985 and Dalva 1975 colheitas. 89/100. Drunk 28-Sep-16.
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
