1995 Dalva colheita

Post by AHB » 00:06 Sun 24 Mar 2013

Dalva 1995 Colheita, bottled 2011: orange-brown to edge, 20% opaque. Taste mid-to-light. Very clean. Very good length, and excellently balanced. €29. JDAW, January 2013

Shown at the Dalva wine bar in Vila Nova de Gaia. Bottled 2011. Deep orange / brown, lovely and clear. Served chilled, so muted on the nose but what showed was mainly toffee and caramel. Delicious texture on entry, with luscious caramel and oranges; a lovely balance. Gentle coffee on the finish of good length. Soft and elegant. 88/100.
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
