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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
