2015 Quinta do Vale Dona Maria

Post by AHB » 23:23 Wed 03 Jan 2018

6,000 bottles produced. Deep red colour with a narrow rim. Fresh on the nose bringing ripe purple plums and early Autumn mornings. Smooth entry, with ripe and sweet fruit, opulent but slightly haughty. Fine gentle tannins grip under the fruit. A very rich and complete mouthful, nicely balanced and drinking beautifully while young. Another good example of the "pretty" vintage. 89-91/100. 06-Nov-17.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
