1940 Cabral white colheita

Post by AHB » 22:05 Fri 23 May 2014

Toffee coloured appearance, murky and with a green rim. Toffee and mandarins on the nose, rather attractive. Sweet entry, lots of toffee and sweet orange flavours. Lovely complexity, a nice sweetness but balanced by sweet citric acidity. Lovely lingering finish, gentle but persistent. Very enjoyable port. 89/100. Drunk 23-Apr-14. Decant N/K
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
