Light in colour, pale centre and a pale orange rim. Nosing of mature redcurrant jelly. Good body, initially sweet and mature fruit. Very nice flavours and some good complexity. Soft and gentle, although it dries out quickly in the mouth. A mild and spicy aftertaste, which si sweet and enjoyable and of good length. 87/100. Drunk 28 June 2009.
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
