2016 Quinta de Roriz

Post by AHB » 20:31 Tue 09 Oct 2018

Another wine from the 2016 vintage that is dark and opaque. More fragrant and elevated on the nose than most others at this tasting, sweet and fresh. Smooth on the palate with the fruit fresh and well rounded. Plenty of tannins showing against the typical Roriz minerality. Fresh and pleasant across the whole of the palate with a refined aftertaste and a good, slightly chewy finish. A nice, elegant port. 87-89.

Tasted 12 September 2018.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994

Rr16 Deep ruby red. Red fruit on the nose and palate. Good flavours, balance and acidity. Nice drinking, but no wow factor.
