1920 Sandeman

On Thursday 19th December 2013 a subset of the obvious suspects gathered at The Bell in Wendens Ambo to taste old, peculiar and unknown bottles.

Modest red centre, very slightly cloudy. Lovely nose, attractive and mature; gentle, smokey fruit and very gentle spirit. Gentle on the palate, with soft, sweet raspberries with a bit of birch sap on the late palate. Fabulous development and complexity. Lovely strawberry jam, then a strong lime acidity that finally finishes with sticky strawberry. 93/100.
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

Fantastic fresh fruit on nose - raspberries all over. Well balanced, sweet berries, lovely bite and long rhubarb finish. Wonderful.

My WOTN with fresh air to spare - 95

S20. Red, 30% opaque. Palate soft, and a touch dried out. With dried figs, and orange peel. Mid weight, lovely balance.
