NV Andresen 10YO White

Post by AHB » 22:07 Sun 22 Oct 2017

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

Bottled 2017. Pale peach in colour, 10% opaque. A little plastic on the nose at first but as the wine warms this changes to honey and quince. Thick in texture and full of honey flavours; air brings even more honey onto the palate and some lovely sweet flowers. Mango and a ripe citrus acidity keep the aftertste and finish focused and balanced. Delicious. 90/100. 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
