4,800 cases made. Mature red in colour, 70% opaque. Limited scent on the nose. Balanced on entry, sweet fruit but a balanced acidity supporting the fruit. Develops beautifully with strawberry syrup. Hot aftertaste, but flavoursome finish with a delicious by cocoa and sour grapes. Well balanced wine. 86/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
