1982 Churchill

Post by AHB » 21:56 Fri 06 Jan 2017

A night cap at the end of the Xmas offline, the perfect way to wrap up.

Warm red colour, 60% opaque. Fruity nose with hints of freshly cut conference pear. Smooth palate with gentle flavours masking some heat on the mid-palate. Light in structure and impact with red pears and red pear skin tannins on the late palate. The gentle pears continue onto the aftertaste and finish. 86/100. Drunk 15-Dec-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
