1963 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 22:22 Fri 23 May 2014

Pale copper-red in colour, 15% opaque. Smelly nose, full of red cabbage - even a bit sulphurous. Soft and hollow on entry, showing very little. Later on the palate there is soft, sweet fruit with well balanced acidity. The finish is floral. This is a restrained, lightweight port that is elegant in style but without but substance. 83/100. Drunk 23-Apr-14.
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
