Decanted 4 hours. 30% opacity, brown, tobacco yellow rim. Sweet and smooth in the mouth, good acidity, though sugary so loses some structure.

Base of neck fill. Lots of fine sediment in the glass has caused the wine to be a little cloudy but when allowed to settle the wine showed as a burnished gold, 20% opaque. A hint of oxidation touches the nose, but otherwise it reveals a delicate stewed rhubarb. Light and elegant on the palate, delicate but delicious with brown sugar and honey flavours supported by a good lime acidity. Delicate and beautifully fragranced with a fabulous finish and great length with just a touch of birch sap in the flavours. 90/100. Decanted 5 hours.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

GC27: cloudy, 3-% opaque. Nose of lovely boiled candy and mocha and wine gums. Palate has heat; big and full; mocha, and black wine gums. Long and fabulous.

Later: still very big and long.
