NV Andresen 40YO White

A40Y White:15% opaque, apricot colour. Sweet, mouth-filling, good length. But a stranger to me: I did not know how to asses this type of wine. JDAW, January 2013

Bottled 2012. Golden amber in colour, with a green rim. Soft VA dominates the nose, but not in an unattractive way. Sweet and raisiny impact with a decent acidity to support the sweetness. Hot aftertaste, then a lemon and raisin finish of rather short length. A touch simple for a 40 year old blend. 85/100. 1 hour decant.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
