Golden brown colour; 40% opaque. A gentle nose of hay and toffee apples precedes a rounded and slightly thick texture on entry with pineapple, mango and some lovely tropical fruit on the palate. There are even hints of tannins on the late palate before the lingering orange aftertaste takes over. A very enjoyable nightcap. 88/100. 29-Sep-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
