1942 Niepoort

Post by AHB » 23:29 Fri 10 May 2013

Ex-cellars in a 1 litre bottle. Deep orange in colour, 20% opaque. Attractive nose with rich and mature fruit with a touch of burnt sugar. Mature leathery fruit all over the palate. Soft tannins show on the mid-palate but there is still so much fruit. A bit of heat shows on the aftertaste before the long finish takes over. A very fine port. 94/100. Drunk 24 April 2013 at the Big Fortified Tasting.
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
