Tasted at the Sunday Times wine show at the Old Billingsgate market.

Bottled 2016. Deep chestnut colour, 20% opaque. Gentle caramel and VA on the nose. Initially hollow on the palate but the flavours grow well as the wine warms in the mouth. Toffee and orange with great concentration and a discrete but perfect level of acidity. Great balance. Nice port. 91/100. 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
