1927 Val de Mendiz

Post by AHB » 23:44 Sat 15 Nov 2014

Bottled by Arthur H…odfree & Co Ltd, 11 Arundel Street, London WC2. Mature brick red in colour. A slightly oxidised nose but still with fruit on it. Soft fruit jelly entry, with a lovely intensity of fruit and spices building with time on the palate. Quite sweet, but with enough acidity to balance it. Enjoyable layers of flavour. A very nice aftertaste and a finish that is long and fruity with a pleasant slight bitterness. This is good port. 89/100. Drunk 24-Sep-14. Decanted 5 hours.
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
