1961 Noval Crusted Port

Post by DRT » 23:46 Tue 26 Jul 2011

Tasted at this event on 19th July 2011.

What can I tell you? It was late...

"Boiled sweets - hot - dry finish"

I have a sample in the fridge so will report back later with some more profound thoughts and observations on this wine.

The sample:

Orange peel on the nose. Lots of it. Quite thin entry but then gathers weight in the mid palate with lots of citrus fruit and a grapefruit finish. Very pleasant, mature port. This is much better than I remember it on the night of the tasting. Quite delicious.
