NV Vieira de Sousa 10YO White

Post by AHB » 00:01 Sun 28 Jun 2015

Bottled 2012. Very pale brown colour, 10% opaque. Served chilled, this revealed only a little over-ripe peach on the nose. Smooth entry with a nice thick texture. Honeyed on the mid-palate, sweet and with a nice layering of complexity; slightly under-acidified so the balance is not quite right. The gentle honey comes through on the aftertaste with clover honey dominating the long finish. A lovely glass of port, but one which would not be easy to drink by the bottle. 88/100. May 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
