2015 Pintas

2,500 bottles produced. Deep purple colour with no rim. Blueberry dominated nose, sweet and open. Sweet entry, gentle on the palate. Fruit slowly grows on the mid-palate and is supported by fine-grained tannins. Lovely layers of flavour provide a great complexity on the palate. The tannins grip impressively but are always civilised and never harsh. This is a lovely port which perfectly combines the prettiness of the vintage with a more punchy style of tannins than most ports from this year. 92-94/100. 06-Nov-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
