1955 Burmester Colheita

Post by AHB » 20:57 Wed 04 Oct 2017

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.
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

20% opacity, amber, tobacco yellow. My note ends there! I guessed The Port Society 1974 Colheita.
