Re: Weds 14 March 2018, SQVP or a mature LBV

With regards to SQVPs , they are made quite similarly to VPs , with 2-3 years ageing in cask and no ftration prior to bottling. They are generally produced from the producer's finest vineyard in non declared years. I would be inclined to ignore the vineyard boundaries and Noval Silval's don't come ...

Last week were drunk, from my cellar, three double-magnums of Sandeman Vau 2000. Plus my last Cockburn 1955.
How was the 2000? Must have been good to drink 3 Mags in a week lol! I really like the '99.

Fabulous - it seems we have plenty of reasons to assemble with much port! So how about this: Feb - Port fit for a Queen's subject (with a date to be determined that is good for said subject) Mar - SQVP or mature LBV Apr - Bring a bottle to share with Derek's new Knees I'm quite intrigued by the mat...

Thank you Tony for arranging a fantastic tasting and everyone who contributed and assisted in making this happen. I liked the '67 Ports and agree with JDAW above, light and well balanced with lots of candy aromas. From the declared bunch, Quinta Do Noval was a favourite, followed by Sandeman and las...

Re: Book or Bottle Holiday Present Suggestion

If you go for a bottle than a book I would suggest discovering the style your father likes by making a fun experience out of it. A good way to go is buy a couple of half bottles of two of the major port styles, say a half bottle (375ml) of a 20 year old tawny ( barrel aged) port and a half bottle of...
