1963 Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Port

Post by DRT » 21:54 Tue 26 Jun 2007

From a Port Tasting and Dinner hosted by Christian Seely at Quinta do Noval in October 2006

1963 Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Port

Less than 1 hour in the decanter. Extremely dark colour for a wine of this age. Floral nose and a very thick and creamy texture. Initially quite hot but not for long. Layers of taste are constantly changing. Huge finish.

I would have this again :wink:

Much like the Croft Platinum then?

Nacional 1963

The one time I had Nacional 1963, in the company of Mr Bridgeman, it tasted of raspberries.

Me too: I would have this again.
