NV Sandeman 30YO Tawny (Bottled 2013)

Post by AHB » 23:47 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Bottled 2013. Honey brown colour with a hint of orange at the centre; 20% opaque. A lifted colheita nose full of pistachio paste. Quite thick in texture, rich yet balanced by a powerful acidity. A lovely complex set of flavours full of green apples, quince and lemon marmalade. A huge dose of acidity and a terrific presence on the palate. A dry touch to the aftertaste with a chewy texture leads to a big finish. A very good port, a real step up from the 20 yo. An amazing length to the cheek tingle. 91/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
