Bottled 1977. Ex cellars. Deep golden colour, 20% opaque. Burnt sugar on the nose, cut with tart pomegranite juice. Very sweet impact, with toffee and golden sultanas. A thick texture, but medium bodied in weight. Sweet, with lime and greena apple freshness. Toffee and caramel aftertaste, lots of mandarin but very sweet. Lovely port. 92/100.
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
