MsC67 colheita, quickly tasted away from the main table as a I rushed to the door. Nose light and acidic. Palate light and acidic, with some lemon — charming refreshing lemon.

Bottled in 2016. Pale amber colour, less than 10% opaque. On the nose this is like a freshly opened tin of Golden Syrup. On the palate it is light, fragrant and floral. There is nice intensity on the late palate and a big finish. This port is delicious and with a lovely balance. 89/100.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

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