Sweet and soft on the nose with subdued fruit but very fresh compared to the Six Grapes. Fruit-led entry, slightly angular with noticeable acidity keeping the palate fresh; very soft tannins. Lovely burnt fruit aftertaste with a great persistence. More depth and weight than the Graham 2011 LBV. 90/100. Drunk 21-Feb-17.
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
