Re: Tuesday 15th May 2018, for the Royal Wedding

Julian - Good luck

Derek - I am around from about 3pm and more than happy to assist with decanting and set up if you would like?

Alex - my early availability on the day also means I would be free to check out the BBR pop up too, so I hope to see you there before the tasting.

Re: Tuesday 15th May 2018, for the Royal Wedding

No food for me thank you. I will know on Monday if I will be there early enough to set up... or whether I need to wait for Rosie to come home which will mean not getting there until 7-7.30pm

Re: Second wind for 1963s? Tuesday 10 April 2018

With great regret I have to withdraw from this tasting. I have an event that evening and think it impossible I could be there before 9pm so I need to do the sensible thing and withdraw from what I am sure will be one of the greatest tastings. Very disappointed but I am sure a replacement will be fou...

Re: Tuesday 15th May 2018, for the Royal Wedding

I am afraid I have no 1960 port but as I am not at the 8s tasting a few weeks after, I was going to bring a GM68 if that is acceptable.

Re: The wine shed - a concept, and some horrible maths..

As they say on FTLOP a lot... +1

Hadn’t realised how cheap it could be... I might build 2 at the end of the garden. Now I just need 400 cases too! 🤔

Re: Place holder for June 6/7th Vintage with an '8' theme.

I am afraid I need to withdraw as I will be in Scotland that week... unless there is any interest in changing to the week after? ;-)

Re: Latest buy

Not a recent purchase... but took delivery of 12 bottles of Graham's Malvedos 2015 vintage this week following a purchase of a Port Bond from Vintage Wine & Port in 2015 to celebrate my wedding year. I have only seen 1 tasting note for it so far, in Wine Spectator Feb 2018 issue, where it scores 94 ...

Re: Second wind for 1963s? Tuesday 10 April 2018

At approx £100 I am in for the NN please as the opportunity will not present itself very often, and I can’t pass it up... but will be happy with the decision either way.

Re: Second wind for 1963s? Tuesday 10 April 2018

Just to throw a curve ball and probably spout heresy... but I have a 1963 Cavendish I could add to the ‘63 party instead of adopting if people were interested.

I am very sorry for the late notice, but I am afraid that people’s plans have changed and I would not be able to get to the tasting until late if I came so it is best if I withdraw. I wish you a fine tasting and shall raise a toast to you Wolfgang. Apologies again.
