A fantastic post, which should itself be displayed atop a doily of the finest nature.
Custom-made TPF doilies maybe?
I thought that’s what Julian’s placemats already were!?

Re: VWP and b.f.t. Quevedo tasting

The serving temperature guide for tawny/colheita port is approx 10-12 degrees c. Personally I think you can go a bit colder. I will take the port out of the fridge about 15 mins before and pour. They should get up to the perfect temperature for the start. I am sure others will have very different vi...

Re: Krohn vintage port

Hi Simon, Having been stored in the loft maybe an issue, as although nice and dark they may have been subject to quick temperature changes and significant heat in the summer months. If you don’t find a buyer here it maybe worth opening and enjoying one to make sure they have not been affected. Good ...

Re: Sunday May 3rd - my 60th birthday..

Happy Birthday for tomorrow Tom! I hope we still get your birthday tasting done and that I can still make it, at which I look forward to sharing a S60, which I have saved for it, with you. Enjoy your 1945 and the rest of the celebrations.

Re: Lockdown Drinking

Wow! That is a list of some fine port from great vintages. I am guessing it is 75mls sample bottles as per the first couple of tastings. So this one or Churchill's for a bit less?

Re: Virtual tasting #3, Tuesday 21 April

Bottle opened and decanted at 10pm last night. Stopper put on decanter but will be removed at midday. Seems to be showing very well.

Re: Should the IVDP ban the filtration of LBV?

By coincidence it is the 50th anniversary of the first filtered Taylor’s LBV (The 1965 LBV released in 1970).

Re: Should the IVDP ban the filtration of LBV?

Coming back to the first post’s premise... The important thing is there is a place for both styles and filtering should not be banned 😀🍷

The tasting pack is £99 for 6 x 375ml bottles for a Taste at Home tutored tasting with Oscar on YouTube Live. This is also done in association with the gr...

Re: Should the IVDP ban the filtration of LBV?

Rightly or wrongly I thought that those that filter their LBV do it so that there is a quality ‘ruby’ port available for the market that requires no decanting (and can also be described as Vintage). To a lot of people the need to decant and a lot of the other traditions around port that we like are ...

Like Alex's idea of post-tasting tasting.
If there is an apres tasting tasting, we should arrange a warm up tasting for early birds too 😀🍷
