1984 Fonseca Guimaraens

Post by AHB » 23:52 Fri 14 Nov 2014

Mature red in colour, 50% opaque. Gentle candied fruit on the nose and a nicely balanced fruit-led entry. Medium weight with soft spicy fruit and very gentle tannins. A lovely lengthy finish of jellied fruit. Rather lovely. 90/100. Drunk 25-Sep-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
