2016 Liberator - The Bishop of Norwich

Post by AHB » 01:36 Sat 16 Dec 2017

Cape Vintage from Boplaas but bottled and labelled as a BoB for Richard Kelly aka ""Rick, The Caped Crusader"" as one of the wines he markets in the UK.

Light ruby red colour, 50% opaque. A gentle nose of slightly sour bramble, but not really a distinct nose. Soft flavours on entry, delicate and with a big dose of acidity to give a palate that is light and elegant and tasty. Soft raspberries linger on the aftertaste and deliver a long, slightly bitter finish. This is a pleasant Cape Vintage wine. 89/100. Drunk 11-Oct-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
