Golden straw in colour with a hint of orange. Gentle on the nose, showing very little. Sweet on the palate, floral but with a quince bitterness at the core. This develops on the palate and has some nice layering. The bitter-sweet sensation runs through to the very long finish. This is rather an odd combination. 83/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
