1970 Niepoort vintage port

Post by DRT » 23:34 Tue 26 Jul 2011

Tasted at this event on 19th July 2011.

From a tall (rather than dumpy) bottle.

My note from the evening is characteristically brief:

"Lovely delicate nose - thick entry - spicy - lovely port. WOTN"

I do remember this being the most complete port of the night by a very long way. Simply delicious.

I kept a sample bottle which I drank about three days later. I did not take a note but it was a fabulous glass of port that provided a very good end to a very long day.

Thanks to RAYC for sharing this rare bottle :wink:
