1934 Feuerheerd colheita

Post by AHB » 22:07 Fri 23 May 2014

Bottled 2013. Deep brown, intense colour, 90% opaque. Powerful nose of ancient port, promising huge levels of acidity when sipped; really big and powerful. Surprisingly subdued entry, but with a rich and thick texture. Intense acidity zings through on the mid-palate, backed by a huge flavour profile of intense, concentrated citrus flavours. Big, big aftertaste and finish. Great concentration and complexity, a very impressive port. 95/100. Drunk 23-Apr-14. Pop 'n' pour.
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
