2015 Quinta do Vesuvio

Post by AHB » 21:06 Tue 24 Oct 2017

Deep purple colour. Herbaceous nose bringing lots of purple fruit. Punchy on the palate with generous purple / violet fruit. Lots of gentle tannins float around the palate but these are dwarfed by the elegant violet flowers. Sweet chewy fruit flavours dominate the aftertaste and lead to a great finish that is slightly short compared to the Senhora da Ribeira. Very tasty. 90-92/100. 24-May-17.
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
