Bottled 2015. Golden brown with a slight green rim, 10% opaque. An attractive pistachio nose with a lively star-fruit acidity. Multiple layers show on the nose. Soft entry onto the palate with smoke, dried pineapple and burnt orange marmalade gripping the taste buds. Great acidity keeps the freshness and balance. The acidity flashes on the aftertaste before a soft heat takes over and leads to a toffee and caramel finish that eventually evolves back to burnt marmalade. A wonderful port. 94/100. Drunk 21-Feb-17.
