1970 Sandeman vintage port

Post by AHB » 23:37 Sat 11 Jul 2009

Pale in colour compared with the other Sandeman vintage wines being shown alongside (1960, 1963 and 1977). Sweetened redcurrants and a dusty, peppery bite to the nose - very similar to the 1977. Soft, sweet and elegant in the mouth and showing lots of dusty tannins. Sweet, but perhaps a little simple compared to its peers at the tasting. Still fruity and enjoyable. Huge aftertaste, really big and flavoursome, full of elegance and jelly beans. 91/100. 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

S70: bright red, almost pink. Red fruit nose, though with less strawberry than the S63 and S77, but the taste overwhelmed with strawberries. Lovely. Some heat late palate.
