Loads of dried fruit with apricot and Brazilian limes. Full body and very sweet. Bright acidity. The density and purity of this port is astonishing. Honey, caramel and dried fruits. Gets fresher and fresher on the palate. Goes on for minutes. Leaves me speechless.
This is from a cask, one of three remaining, thought to date from 1882. Bright orange tawny colour and very intensely aromatic. Once the little tasting bottles were opened at the launch in Christie's, London the whole room was perfumed. Impressively clean and pure and it immediately reminded me of orange peel which, I see, I also found in their 1952 Colheita released in 2012, although I had completely forgotten this when I tasted the older wine. Really appetising and super-clean.
