Bottled 1966. Very pale with a modest orange-brown colour; 5% opaque. Muted nose, very gentle but pleasantly fragrant. Lightweight, light-bodied; elegant and floral with a hint of coffee on the inoffensive palate. Very long but dried out finish full of slightly bitter cedar wood and birch sap. 87/100. Decanted ½ hour.
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
