1974 Barros colheita

Post by AHB » 12:20 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Bottled 2016. Fragrant nose, pale brown with a pink rim; 15% opaque. Sweet nose, with lots of bruised apple. Sweet on entry with apples and brown sugar. A lovely mid palate, well balanced by clean acidity. The soft apple flavours persist throughout the palate; the late palate is delicious. Sweet finish that is slightly unbalanced. 86/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
