1963 Gould Campbell

Mature red appearance. Nosing of mature port - sweet fruit and gentle spices. Wonderful sweetness on the palate, full of raisins and sultanas and cherries but always infused with a touch of nutmeg. Wonderful layering with flavour after flavour flooding across the palate. Great balance and elegance leading into the aftertaste and a long, sweet fruity finish. Dirk Niepoort described this as "a bit of alright". 93/100. 4 hours double decanted. 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
