1977 Sandeman

Post by AHB » 22:29 Fri 23 May 2014

A pale reddish-gold in colour, 15% opaque. Astringent nose, lots of fruit but the fruit is very sour - rhubarb and green gooseberries. Soft palate entry, modest fruit but powerful acidity and even some gentle tannins on the mid-palate. Medium to light-bodied. Gentle aftertaste but good volume finish of great length. 86/100. 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
