1957 Sandeman vintage port

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

Attractive red colour, firm centre and pale rim. Empty nose. Nice body and texture, quite thick. Sweet and attractive palate, lots of late red cherry and gentle acidity. Warm, spicy and fruity finish of great length. 88/100. 13-Jun-12. Decanted 1 hour.
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.

S57: glorious red, 40% opaque. Nose of strawberry and cherry. Big and unctuous. Gentle. A hint of acridity mid-palate, but thoroughly excellent. Big and long.
