From a half bottle. Burnished orange colour, 30% opaque. Tawny style nose, big and pronounced and full of pistachio paste. Smooth on the palate with lots of honey and lemon; surprisingly dry. Dry ghosts of tannin show on the balanced aftertaste and a long honeyed finish of lovely sour citrus. 93/100.
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
