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 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
