1942 Fonseca Guimaraens

Post by AHB » 19:33 Sun 29 Oct 2017

Pale in the glass, the colour of fresh beechwood; 20% opaque. Oxidised nose but accompanied by a very pleasant orange essence. Oranges on the palate too, combining with a long coffee finish. Not a bad port, but poorly stored at some point in its life resulting in an oxidised wine which shows hints of what it might have been. 82/100. 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
