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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
