1983 Ramos Pinto (Tinta Roriz)

Post by AHB » 22:23 Thu 02 Nov 2017

This bottle was the single varietal Tinta Roriz.

Light brown colour, lightly pigmented. Little showing on the nose. Light entry, sweet and with a lovely licorice on the mid-palate. Better levels of acidity than the previous two varietals (Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca) but still not enough to give a balanced port on its own. Gentle tannic grip shows on the finish. 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
