1964 Niepoort Colheita

Post by AHB » 22:24 Tue 01 Jul 2014

Bottling date not noted. Golden red, firm colour, 30% opaque. Gentle marzipan nose and violet infused VA. Sweet in the palate, soft and gentle sweet dried fruit with lots of dried apricots. Very sweet. This has a great finish but even the finish is still very sweet and lacks a little in acidity for balance. 84/100. 24-Jun-14. Decanted ½ hour
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
