1977 Niepoort vintage port

Post by AHB » 16:58 Sat 11 May 2013

Reddish-brown in colour, 20% opaque. Hollow nose but sweet fruit on the palate, with good balance and ripe tannins. Nice fruit development on the palate and licorice root all over the finish. Delicious, but not as good as the 1970 shown alongside. 91/100. Tasted at the BFT on 24 April 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
