Re: Port for sale by retailer

A Quevedo virtual tasting from VWP: https://www.vintagewineandport.co.uk/products/Quevedo-30000 Probably less interesting for the more experienced port drinkers among us but as a relative newbie I certainly had my interest piqued! Any thoughts on this? I figured it's reasonable value and supporting...

Re: Should the IVDP ban the filtration of LBV?

I have previously suggested 'F numbers' that could be tucked into a corner of a back label somewhere: F0 being wholly unfiltered, F1 lightly stabilised and so on up to F5 - stripped bare. The exact parameters could be agreed between the producers. So you’re saying that Port is too easy for non-expe...

Re: Should the IVDP ban the filtration of LBV?

I think personally I would love to have better clarity on the expected peak of drinkability of the wines. If filtered I know that will most likely be as soon as possible, but unfiltered is a lot less clear - are these best in a few years? A decade? More? Who knows?! For unfiltered a truthful messag...

Re: Should the IVDP ban the filtration of LBV?

I agree that it can be confusing as to who is doing what, and the different closures and ageing potential, but I think that calls for better labelling rather than changing the diversity of production. Portugal has enough difficult rules. Allow as much as possible; require only that the customer be ...

Re: Another virtual tasting

unsure, at this point, of the object of the exercise beyond convivial drinking. Convivial drinking very very important. Subsidiary objective can be seen in the likes of this post (names of wines in left column; names of guessers in top row; returning officer enters guesses one guesser at a time; wh...

Re: Tom’s Birthday 1960 Horizontal, Tue 02 June 2020

Hastiness has caused me, accidentally, to drink the F60 that was in London, and as my father is deep-isolating, perhaps the only one I can access in time. Oops.

Grave medical need, as I’m sure you understand.

Re: Another virtual tasting

Either, or both.

Based on last time, my reckoning is that we need the guessing page of the placemats, and only that page. Did the other attendees agree?

Re: Online Tasting - Wed 25th March 2020

I’d like the format for tomorrow’s tasting to be Reverse Blind.

Reverse Blind? I taste my Port, and tell you what I taste. You ask questions — “X on the aftertaste?” — and I answer honestly.

Then you guess what my Port is.

Objections?
