1963 Niepoort Colheita

Post by AHB » 20:56 Thu 02 Nov 2017

Bottled 1991. Butterscotch colour with a yellow rim. Rather flat on the nose, only a little butterscotch. Surprisingly big on the palate with good acidity, flowers and treacle. Light and bouncy with a good clear focus. Gentle coffee and green apples on the aftertaste and a lingering honey finish. A delicate port, long but not loud. 88/100. 23-Jun-17.
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
