NV Sandeman 40YO Tawny (Bottled 2017)

Post by AHB » 22:59 Sun 30 Apr 2017

Bottled 2017. Light orange colour, less than 10% opaque. Gentle orange on the nose; smooth texture on the palate. Honey and lemon dominate the flavours with a burly acidity behind them. A lovely perfume appears on the late palate before a honey atertaste takes over and leads to a slightly dry finish - could there be some tannins still in this port? Nice length to the finish. 92/100. Drunk 04-Apr-17.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
