Ni83. Red, hint of pink, 40% opaque. Taste starts big, slightly dry. Cherry and a hint of cantaloupe. Mid-palate slightly hollow, with heat. RMW noted ‟strawberry as well”.

Mature red colour, thinning red rim; 50% opaque. Warm and alcoholic nose, a little unbalanced and with a touch of bottle stink. Sweet and very thick entry, lots of concentrated fruit - dry cherry and late light tannins. A burst of heat on the aftertaste, then a very long and tart finish of woody licorice root. Served blind, this was guessed to be Dow 1983. 89/100. Drunk 26-Feb-13. Decant not known.

My first Niepoort 1983 - thank you Ronnie!
