Bottled 1979. Pale amber colour with a green rim; 20% opaque. Gentle toffee on the nose, with lots of VA suggesting this is a wood aged port. Toffee and coffee on the start of the palate, but in a light and gentle way. Delicate texture and light honey flavours on the palate; a very dry style of port. Big on the aftertaste, which is dry and slightly bitter, before a long finish of slightly dry damsons. Served blind, this was guessed to be a bottle of Niepoort 1977 Garrafeira. 87/100. Pop 'n' pour. Drunk 28 September 2017.
