1989 Calem colheita

Post by AHB » 11:48 Sun 15 Mar 2015

Bottled 2015. Red/orange colour, 60% opaque. Baked peaches and custard on the nose. Lively and acidic on the palate with lots of orange and zest but also an unpleasant hint of plastic I have found in the past in cheap French supermarket BoB ports. The aftertaste is pleasant though. 86/100. 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
