2000 Ferreira LBV

Sadly, no note of the year of bottling nor whether bottled in the traditional manner or filtered.

Solid red colour, thinning on the rim and opaque in the centre. Delicate floral nose. Sweet fruit on the palate with a wood-resin tannic core. Soft tannins and significant acidity. Restrained and soft on the aftertaste, which is a little empty. Rather a light port. 83/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
