1890 Ramos Pinto White Colheita

Post by AHB » 19:41 Sun 29 Oct 2017

Believed to have been bottled in the 1920s. Burnished gold in colour, about 20% opaque. Oxidised but elegant and flavoursome on the palate. Eminently drinkable and thoroughly enjoyable. Very dry, leading me to speculate whether it had been fermented fully and then fortified. 85/100. 19-Jun-17. Pop 'n' pour.
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
