1964 Niepoort Colheita

Post by AHB » 22:25 Tue 01 Jul 2014

Bottled in 1971. Red-amber in colour, 20% opaque. Oxidative but clean colheita nose. Sweet flavours on entry, modest texture but flavoursome palate. Good acidity and generous flavours. Harsh spirit burn on the aftertaste, before a light and short burnt toast finish that blossoms nicely. Pleasant colheita. 86/100. Drunk 24-Jun-14. Pop 'n' pour.
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
