1983 Ramos Pinto (Touriga Franca)

Post by AHB » 22:22 Thu 02 Nov 2017

This bottle was the single varietal Touriga Franca.

Reddish-brown colour, quite lightly pigmented. Interesting on the nose, light and floral yet quite complex. Sweet and reminding me of a vinho licoroso on the palate, good texture but light on impact and flavour, not much more that black wine gums. Good and gentle acidity but no tannins remaining. Lots of sweetness on the aftertaste and a finish of sweet wine-gums of good 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
