1967 Martinez vintage port

Post by AHB » 00:15 Sat 09 Oct 2010

Very light colour, pale pink and clear; 20% opaque. Hot and peppery on the nose. Light bodied, sweet and simple palate although soft chocolate shows through. An acidic orange aftertaste and a good sugary length. This is light bodied and simple drinking, I have had much better bottles of this wine. 80/100. Drunk 27 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
