4,800 cases made. Mature red in colour, 70% opaque. Limited scent on the nose. Balanced on entry, sweet fruit but a balanced acidity supporting the fruit. Develops beautifully with strawberry syrup. Hot aftertaste, but flavoursome finish with a delicious by cocoa and sour grapes. Well balanced wine. 86/100.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
