1974 Quevedo Colheita (bottled 2013)

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

The bottle behind the bar at The White Horse in Newport, Essex; no-one was quite sure how long it had been open. Bottled in 2013. Big and powerful nose; smooth on the palate with brown sugar and lime juice acidity but showing signs of oxidation from being open a long time. NR. Tasted 15-Dec-22.
Top Ports in 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.
