25% opacity, red-orange. Soft and sweet, like many of the others on show, very drinkable, but perhaps fading a little.

Light burnished copper, 30% opaque. A lovely nose of beeswax and rosehips, lively. Soft and textured entry, rich and full of mature and spiced stewed fruit. Fresh and lively fruit on the palate, modest in level. Redcurrants and brown sugared cranberries on the palate. Lovely spiced fruit compote aftertaste before a long and fragrant finish. 92
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.
