1917 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 20:30 Tue 31 Oct 2017

Drunk at the Factory House on the occasion of The Port Forum's 10th Anniversary dinner.

Light brown in colour. Rather oxidised on the nose, smelling more like sherry than Port. Despite this, lovely and sweet on entry, full of brown sugar. Generous levels of acidity keep the palate alive and fresh and lead to a delicious coffee essence on the late palate. The coffee continues onto the aftertaste and fades only slowly to deliver a wonderful lingering orange concentrate finish. A very pleasant showing. 90/100. 21-Jun-17. Decanted 3½ hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
