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 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
