The palest brown and least cloudy, the former perhaps attributable to it being made from white grapes. Lightly bual to the nose: “does smell Madeira†, say my notes. Great length to taste; again lightly bual; good sticky long-lasting mouthfeel; medium weight; delicious; very long. Lovely stuff, the only imperfection being the medium weight.

My favourite.

I agree with Julian completely on these notes.

I gave it a 93-94/100.

Best port I have ever had. How's that for a review?
