Cálem Vintage Port 2005 - 3 bottles for sale

Cálem Vintage Port 2005 As far as I am aware, this wine is very difficult to find currently on sale (despite being from 2005) and, imho, will be quickly (if not already...) a rarity. Perhaps due the (small?) quantity of cases produced and to the awards collected: http://www.sogevinus.com/2011/12/cal...

Re: Crusted port database

My mistake in Niepoort date :oops: (not 2005, but 2011, 2012 and 2014). There is also Quevedo Crusted Port (no bottling date see in the label).

Re: Hello from Porto, Portugal - new member

Thank you, Simon. You are right concerning older Colheitas and Tawnies (despite a negative aspect related to the often deficient storage of these wines in many Portuguese retailers).
If I can help with something about Port wine here in Porto...
All the best,
Júlio

Re: 2005 Declarations

I bought these wines at Portuguese wine stores in the last 3 years (they rest in my small wine cellar). This year Khron made VP and SQVP (and, also, LBV and Colheita) - see Wiese & Krohn old website - http://www.krohn.pt/en/?/datedports#vintage - before this centenary company was acquired by Fladgat...

Re: Buying port in Portugal!

Certainly there will be others, but I know the following points of sale: Apolónia Supermercados (good selection of VP although a bit pricey) Garrafeira Soares (on my vacation in June of this year, I bought two VP at a fair price). Garrafeira Veneza Garcias Cash Duty free at Faro Airport may be a goo...

Re: Hello from Porto, Portugal - new member

Thanks! Fantastic city where I was born and of which I like a lot; unfortunately Porto and Portugal are in general - with one exception or another -
expensive places :( to buy quality port wine compared to the UK and other European countries (even USA), as well you mentioned in this forum.

Hello from Porto, Portugal - new member

Hello! I have been looking around at this forum for some time and and finally I decided to register. I especially appreciate VP and LBV (perhaps because they are the perfect accompaniment to the sacred triad of Portuguese cheeses: Serra, Serpa and Azeitão) and, a little less, old tawnies (10, 20, 30...
