Description

The 2011 Burmester Vintage Port Wine is, according to Kim Marcus (Wine Spectator), an "intensely fruity" wine with great complexity and concentration, notes of "raspberries, black plums and wild cherries." This wine offers a "refined finish" with a touch of "dark chocolate, tea and brown sugar." It is a wine that, according to the critic, is ready to drink but has the ability to continue ageing during the next three decades.

"The 2011 J W Burmester has a sweeter, comparatively floral bouquet with open, generous scents of ripe dates, black plum and raisin that need to show a little more restraint. The palate is similarly sweet and viscous on the mouth. It leans away from the 2011's more structured style, but it is nicely balanced and would appeal to those that like a little hedonism in their “VPs.” Tasted May 2013." Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
