1960 Sandeman vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:35 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Dark red, deeply coloured centre. A lovely nose of sweetened redcurrants over a dusty element. Sweet and lovely fruit in the mouth with loads of white cherries and a white pepper bite. Surprisingly impressive, still with tannins in the mouth but the development and complexity is a little patchy; lip tingling. Sweet and slightly sugary aftertaste but big, mouthfilling and very long. Terrific showing. 90/100. Drunk 26 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

S60, bottled by BBR. Bright red fading at edge to pink/brown. Excellent colour for a woman of her age. The fruit in the nose somewhat masked by acidity; the acidity also dominating the taste. Behind that lay sweetness and red fruit.
