Bottled 2015. Pale golden orange colour, 10% opaque. Nosing of sea salt and iodine this has a sweet palate of gentle honey and lime flavours. The acidity delivers a nice dose of cracked black peppercorns but the flavours are gentle and soft. The finish is enjoyable and lingering. This is a lovely and delicate style of colheita.
Royal Oporto colheitas are not refreshed and not always topped up. 89/100. Drunk 29-Sep-16.
