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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
