NV Offley white port

Post by AHB » 23:02 Tue 17 Jul 2012

Cachucha white reserve (approx. 7 yrs old). Barley sugar in colour, but with an off-putting plastic resin nose. Thick and enjoyable texture, with honey flavours and nice acidity; full-bodied and mouthfilling on the palate but disappointing and hollow on the finish. 75/100. 10-Jun-12. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994
