Bottled in 1977 in a Wedgwood decanter in the shape of the Don. Pale gold in colour; a distinct nose of white port mixing plastic and petrol. Slightly warm on the palate with lots of petrol mixed with apricot and peach. Some acidity shows on the lingering petrol finish. Served blind this was guessed to be Kopke 10 year old white. 85/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
