Very cloudy and dirty looking, possibly light damaged. Light orange / brown in colour. Virtually nothing on the nose. Sweet entry with some hints of milk chocolate - brown sugar but little fruit flavour. Some tannins and more milk chocolate on the late palate. A dry aftertaste and a lingering finish. Sweet but with very little flavour. 80/100. 19-Dec-17. Decanted 7 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

70% opacity, orangey brown and totally clouded. Sugary, and damaged in some way, though not undrinkable.

Note this was Kopke Quinta St. Luiz

I now understand there was both a full Kopke and a SQ VP in 1977
