1961 Calem colheita

Post by AHB » 22:18 Thu 26 May 2016

Bottled 2016. Light brown in colour with a hint of green - the colour of young willow wood. Little on the nose, just a touch of sweetened VA. Lovely delicate honey flavours and fresh green apple acidity. This develops a nice weight on the mid-palate before leading on to a lingering clover honey finish. A delicate and elegant port. 89/100. 22-Apr-16.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
