1965 Malvedos

Mid red colour, showing maturity, touch of orange on the rim; 40% opaque. Full of dusty fruit on the nose, sweet and attractive, fresh citrus everywhere. Sweet impact, rose hip syrup; gentle red jelly flavours come through on the palate but always with a strong acidity. No noticeable tannins but there is a lovely tobacco bite. Lovely aftertaste of sweet raspberry jelly that lasts a long time with a delicious mintiness to it. 90/100. Drunk 2 April 2011 after 3 hours decant.
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
