1975 Kopke Quinta de Sao Luiz vintage port

Post by AHB » 14:12 Tue 02 Feb 2010

Kopke. Slight cloudy appearane. Pale red in colour. Floran nose, slightly chocolately and with a touch of white pepper, but very restrained. Sweet entry with a slightly bitter flavour - quince perhaps. Sweet and bland entry, little in the mouth other than jelly beans. Nothing but sweet strawberries in a one-dimensional finish. Not a great wine. 81/100. Drunk 1 Feb 2010.
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

Very translucent. Tawny, with a hint of red. Nose: raisins. To taste sourness, then astringency, then soft sweetness.
