1945 Croft

Darker than the Fonseca Guimaraens 1942 drunk alongside this bottle, this being a warm honey colour. Sweet treacle on the nose and a much sweeter palate than the FG42. Sadly somewhat oxidised but still a decent palate presence. 84/100. Drunk 19-Jun-17. Decanted 1 hour.
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
