NV Quevedo 30YO White (Bottled 2015)

Post by AHB » 22:49 Tue 24 May 2016

Bottled 2015. Honey brown in colour, 5% opaque with a light green rim. Almond paste on the nose with hints of quince jam. Thick in texture with gentle honey flavours and fresh apricot. Late on the palate there are daisies and fresh pineapple. Perhaps there is a hint of tannin on the aftertaste before the big and very fruit focused finish that is chewy and long lasting. This is a delicious port that mixes power with finesse. 90/100. Pop 'n' pour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
