Is it a BOB? Where did you see it?

I got a couple of bottles from Lidl for £15 each. Am yet to try it properly, but went through most of a bottle after finishing some aged 40YO a couple of weeks ago, and it held up well. Lots of fire, but in a good way. On the label it is produced by C.da Silva, so would it suggest a Lidl BoB from Dalva? The Lidl I purchased from also had a same brand white Colheita for sale too, a 2007 that was also £14.99.

The house is C da Silva (who produce Dalva) so I would agree that it is likely a BOB for Lidl.

I don't think it is a BOB - it is also available on Amazon.

...and lots of other places around the world.

Never seen it at their lodge, so maybe a label for specific markets??

I saw reference to it when i was taking my driving course, to reduce my insurance premiums, here in NY.

It was used as an example of the evils of drunk driving.

Hi all, relatively new port fans here - branching out from scotch! Sorry for resurrecting a zombie thread but just to say that this was confirmed to me by a Dalva/Cruz rep on a visit earlier this week (Feb 2017): according to him, Dalva are exclusive white label suppliers to Lidl, and so it is essentially Cruz port that you're drinking when you buy this or other labels.
