1983 Offley Boa Vista

Post by AHB » 17:09 Sun 22 Oct 2017

The fourth bottle from a case of six bought from Dreweatt Neate in 2009.

Deep red in colour, looking very youthful. Dark bramble fruit on the nose. The palate is balanced with dusty cocoa tannins merged in with the dark bramble fruit, accompanied by an interesting green leaf component. The green leaf shows strongly on the aftertaste before the sweet bramble and dark chocolate take over for the very long finish. Very fine, very youthful and delicious port. 91/100. Drunk 20-Apr-17. Decanted 3 hours.
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
