1981 Burmester Colheita

Post by AHB » 11:41 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Bottled 2015. Deep copper colour, 50% opaque. A lovely fragrant nose of acacia honey and the twist of VA I expect to find on fine old tawny port, attractive and balanced. Lovely fruit on entry, rich and delicious and with a fine complexity and depth. The finish is of burnt sugar and lasts well. The balance is a great aspect to this port. 92/100. Tasted 05-Mar-15.
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
