1999 Sandeman Vau

Post by AHB » 21:58 Sun 29 May 2016

Mature red colour, 90% opaque. Delicious nose, poised and with plenty of sweet fruit. The sweet fruit leads the entry, which is balanced with good acidity and soft tannins. More weight that the Quinta da Leda port from the same vintage but still a touch of lightness to it. Nice development of fruit on the palate and a pepper finish. 85/100. 22-Apr-16
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
