1963 Dalva Golden White Colheita

Post by AHB » 23:48 Fri 08 Oct 2010

Tasted at C. da Silva's new tasting house in Vila Nova de Gaia. Bottled October 2009. Pale gold, with a glowing centre, 10% opaque. Petrol on the nose and ripe, pink melons. Lovely texture, gorgeous balance, full of flavours of lychees and tinned peaches with a fantastic syrup texture. Gorgeous aromatics and released with air. The afteraste is slow to develop, but leads to a sweet finish of peaches and caramel. A lovely wine, with a good density of flavours; very enjoyable. 90/100. Drunk 28 September 2010.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Gould Campbell 1977
