1910 Andresen Colheita

Post by AHB » 23:05 Sun 28 Mar 2010

Bottled 1973. Fusty nose, perhaps some bottle stink, underneath which was some atractive molasses and some unattractive black treacle. Smooth entry, sweet and pleasant but then some bitter tones come through that spoil the mouthfeel, but these resolve themselves to yield a balanced and pleasant mouthful of wine. The aftertaste starts with a lovely warm glow but this fades quickly. 90/100. Drunk 1 July 2007.
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
