Bottled 1983. Mid-orange colour, slightly cloudy. Little on the nose, perhaps a touch of VA. Sweet entry, with a lovely balancing acidity. Lots of smokey orange and a slight dry edge - even some tanning! A wine that becomes mothfilling and developes nicely on the palate. Big finish; dry, fruity and full of marmalade. A lovely wine. 88/100.
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
