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 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
