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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
