2015 Quinta do Vesuvio

Post by AHB » 22:23 Wed 03 Jan 2018

Extended tasting over 4 days to allow the wine to develop and show a more full picture of itself.

Delicate, full of fruit and cornflowers on the nose and the palate. The tannins are very soft and fine-grained and the structure is given by the plentiful acidity. The whole is very harmonious and balanced. Rather a regal wine, with the prettiness typical of the vintage. 92-94.
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
