NV Sandeman Cask 33

Post by AHB » 22:46 Sun 27 Dec 2015

One of the lotes used to create the blend which went into Cask 33. Orange amber colour, quite dark; 50% opaque. A distinctly colheita style nose, showing attractive almond paste with an orange essence. Lovely poise on the palate; a great orange sweetness but fabulously balanced by a great acidity. Great richness to the flavours and a long, long length of concentrated and grapefruit. 89/100. 24-Nov-15. Drunk 4½ hours.

Drunk at Otto's on 24 November 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
