1937 Niepoort colheita

Post by AHB » 08:39 Fri 01 Aug 2008

Bottled 1979. Cloudy appearance, deep honey colour with a green rim. Nose dominated by spirit but otherwise very little on the nose. Sweet into the mouth, lots of sugar and then the acidity comes through in a balanced way. The aftertaste starts extremely well but drops off disappointingly quickly and loses a point from the score for this. 91/100. Drunk June 2007.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
