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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
