1965 Warre Colheita

Post by AHB » 17:13 Wed 18 Jul 2012

Bottling date unknown, estimated to be in the 1980s. Cloudy in appearance, very light amber in colour. Unattractive nose, hot, peppery and with a touch of VA. Neutral entry, with a pleasant pepperiness followed by some late grapefruit and smokey brown sugar. Light but pleasant palate. Slightly bitter finish, but with a great length that is mouthwatering and warming. Excellent lunchtime port. 85/100. 12-Jun-12.
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
