1974 Feuerheerd colheita

Post by AHB » 22:08 Fri 23 May 2014

Bottled 2013. Dark honey-brown in colour, but with a slight green on the rim. A huge colheita nose full of marzipan and ripe pears. Thick and sweet texture with powerful acidity that cuts through the sweetness and fruit. Big flavours on the palate. Big, honeyed aftertaste with lots of lime, lemon and grapefruit oil. Very lovely. 90/100. 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
