1991 Andresen Colheita (bottled 2016)

Post by AHB » 22:04 Sun 22 Oct 2017

Tasted at the Sunday Times wine show at the old Billingsgate market in London.

Bottled 2016. Pale orange in colour, 10% opaque. Gentle and attractive nose of toffee and dried figs. Sweet on the palate, with balance and elegance. Toasted cinder toffee on the mid-palate with a nice element of acidity keep the freshness. Lots of caramel and soft hazelnut show on the aftertaste and the hazelnuts dominate the lingering and gentle finish. This is elegant and gentle. 87/100. Drunk 19-May-17.
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
