1952 Dalva Golden White Colheita

Post by AHB » 00:50 Sat 05 Nov 2011

Golden colour, very pale with even a hint of green on the rim; 10% opaque. Slightly direty on the nose; a touch of VA very faintly showing over the almonds. Lovely flavour spreads over the tongue; develops beautifully - soft and gentle with a lovely elegance and balance. Big aftertaste; mouthfilling and long lasting. 94/100. Drunk 18 October 2011.
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
