2008 Niepoort Bioma

Post by AHB » 22:31 Sat 28 May 2016

Bottled April 2011. Wide rim with a hint of purple. Fragrant nose, nicely perfumed. Hollow entry but a lovely mid-palate. Sweet fruit held in check bu the cocoa tannins and the acidity and bringing an elegance to the power. Chewy tannin aftertaste. 91/100. 22-Apr-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
