2011 Kaapzicht Hanepoot Jerepigo

Post by AHB » 23:29 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Made from white table grapes, pressed and immediately fortified to 17% before any fermentation. Pale straw in colour. A huge nose of sweet muscat grapes and elderflowers, sweet and inviting. Full of sweet, fresh and floral flavours - sticky but with a nice freshness and delicacy to it. Different and enjoyable. 86/100. May 2015.
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
