1963 Dalva Golden White Colheita

Post by AHB » 00:51 Sat 05 Nov 2011

Very pale, the colour of weak barley-sugar; 5% opaque. A little closed on the nose, but vry colheita-like. Fresh entry, nice balance with a light and elegant body; a good dose of acidity and even some tannins. Big aftertaste, big finish of long length. 92/100. 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
