Tasted at C. da Silva's new tasting house in Vila Nova de Gaia. Bottled 2009. Deep orange in colour, with a light centre, 5% opaque. Soft nose of peaches and apricots. Medium density in texture, bringing gentle flavours of sweet lychee and apricot. Aeration releases some lovely spice. Dry finish, with soft peaches on the good length finish. This is an enjoyable aperitif wine. 88/100. Drunk 28 September 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
