1952 Dalva Golden White Colheita

Post by AHB » 14:24 Thu 12 Jul 2012

Bottled 2006. Pale gold colour, with a green rim. Strong VA on the nose, with little else showing. Sharply focused attack, with strong acidity bringing concentrated oranges and grapefruit that has a tremendous intensity. There is a slight bitterness on the aftertaste, and a modest finish of good length. Very good showing on such a short decant. 94/100. 15-Jun-12. Pop 'n' pour
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
