1952 Dalva Golden White Colheita

Post by AHB » 23:52 Sat 15 Nov 2014

Bottled 2007. Light amber-brown in colour, 10% opaque. Lots of VA on the nose, some varnish. Thick and unctuous on the palate; intense and with huge acidity. A wonderful concentrated orange. An immense flavoursome aftertaste and massive length. A huge acidity that finally fades to give a lingering, sticky marmalade. 95/100. Drunk 23-Sep-14. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Ports in 2019 (so far): Cockburn 1947 and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
2018 Ports of the year: São Leonardo 1927 White Port (Bottled 2018), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994
