1968 Niepoort colheita, bottled 1979
Oscar visited London, so the team sampled some VPs and some stuff described as ‟brown sticky stuff”. Some were served sighted, some were blind.

Ni68c bot ’79, brought by THRA standing in for RMW. I noted only ‟pineapple, soft, lovely”.

Bottled 1979. Pale honey colour, clear rim. Honey and faint golden syrup on the nose. Brown sugar impact but with a honey layer developing and dominating until a nice coffee tone appears. Very interesting palate. Fine aftertaste and a long finish. Delicate and balanced. 89/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
