1989 White Colheita Port - 50cl Bottle. Exclusive to VWP.
This rare white port-wine has been stored in seasoned oak casks since the 1989 harvest until it was bottled this year. White ports are a true rarity and this 30 year old is an outstanding example.
Tasting Notes: The 1989 palmer has a golden amber colour. On the nose it has a very fine, elegant aroma of honey, and peach infused with a spicy redolence of citrus peel and cinnamon. There are layers of complexity here with mint and a touch of walnut. The palate is perfectly balanced with a fresh acidity and sweetness. It has an amazing rich mellow flavour and an elegant citrus finish that lasts for minutes.
The wine is ready to drink and does not require decanting. The bottle should be kept upright protected from direct sunlight.
Excellent. Bottled 2019
