1983 Ramos Pinto (Barroca)

Post by AHB » 21:04 Thu 02 Nov 2017

This bottle was the single varietal Barroca component, vinified and bottled separately.

Quite brown in colour and with an unusual nose, rather meaty and yeasty. Lovely texture on the palate with delicious meaty fruit flavours and ghosts of tannins. A great combination of mature fruit and acidity yet with a yeasty / meaty baked tone. A great baked fruit finish and a tremendous length. Not Rated. 23-Jun-17. Decanted 5½ hours.
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
