1912 Sandeman vintage port

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

S12: mid-red, 40% opaque, slightly cloudy. Nose closed, with a hint of red cherries. To taste a full texture, heat mid-palate. Very sweet throughout, and sweeter than the Cockburn, but less long. Later it had grown, gaining sweetness and structure. Much much later, and chilled, full, sweet, and fantastic strawberry sweetness. (Note to self: acquire.) JDAW.

Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

Slightly cloudy in appearance, red-amber in colour and with a green / orange rim. Herbs and sage on the nose, with a hint of orange blossom. Soft, sweet and elegant on the palate, a refined and elegant presence. Quite thick in texture and medium bodied. Good intense flavours and a big aftertaste where the acidity makes itself known. Very impressive. 93/100. 14-Jun-12. Pop 'n' pour.
