1975 Feuerheerd colheita

Post by AHB » 23:14 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Bottled 2015. Pale ochre colour, 10% opaque. Lovely nose of fresh pineapple and peaches. Sweet pineapple entry with a lovely cleansing acidity that gives a great balance. Delicious layering with the mid-palate delivering an array of fresh orange and lime. Great palate. A big aftertaste that is slightly soapy but then a long finish follows which has a delicious hint of bitterness. Impressive colheita. 91/100. May 2015.
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
