2015 Pintas

Post by AHB » 23:05 Wed 03 Jan 2018

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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
