1960 Ferreira vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:26 Sun 14 Jun 2009

Opened as part of the Wokingham offline on 11 June 2009.

Ullaged to mid-shoulder. Very pale orange rim; crystal clear and the colour of burnt sugar. Again, some bottle stink but caramelised comes through strongly. Sweet redcurrant dominates the mouth with a lovely balancing acidity. Quite big and mouthfilling. Lemony aftertaste followed by a sweet and lingering aftertaste. Very good indeed. 91/100.
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
