1985 Fonseca

Post by AHB » 22:22 Thu 04 Jan 2018

From the 2017 Berry Brothers Port Walk.

Bought from the Oxford & Cambridge club's wine list @ £60 per bottle. Surprisingly harsh and young on the night. Spiky fruit with hard corners and aggressive acidity. This needs much longer in either the cellar or the decanter. A sample bottle taken home drank much better the following night. 84/100. 23-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
