1927 Croft vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:25 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Light in colour, very clear and transparent. Traditional Croft faint oranges and tangerines on the nose. So smooth in texture, full and complete. Masses of fruit in the mouth and stunning levels of complexity. Very big aftertaste of huge size and huge length, just chock full of sticky marmalade. Stunning, really stunning. 99/100. Drunk 29 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
