1980 Royal Oporto Colheita

Post by AHB » 22:07 Mon 02 Jan 2017

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.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
