2016 Vieira de Souza

Post by AHB » 09:37 Sun 21 Apr 2019

Deep crimson colour. Ripe fruit on the nose. Lovely fruit, balanced and fresh with a massive tannin load; gripping and very firm, but with the fruit to last and linger. This will turn into an amazing Port in 50 year time. The aftertaste is incredibly fragrant, full of perfumed fruit. A massive finish, full of intense blackcurrant flavours and ripe tannins - and a stunning length. Tremendous Port. 94-96/100. 16-Apr-2019.
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
