2005 Niepoort vintage port

Post by AHB » 17:02 Sat 11 May 2013

Opaque, dark red in colour. Oddly plastic and tanky on the nose. Silky texture, early fruit then ripe chalky tannins. A big palate presence with great development and complexity. Modest aftertaste and length. 89/100. Drunk at the BFT on 24 April 2013.
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
