Tuke Holdsworth

Post by jdaw1 » 00:18 Mon 04 Apr 2016

For The Book, long forthcoming, I would like be sent evidence of recent Tuke Holdsworth declarations (≥1963 would be useful, >1966 very useful). Pictures of bottles would be especially welcome.

Thank you.

I have a 1980 and can produce a picture tonight, though I cannot guarantee quality. Of the Port or the picture.

Thank you. No hurry for the picture — a little later and better would be preferred.

Please, if you're happy for me to include any pictures in the VPID also, that would be appreciated - not much TH in there atm.

A shame, I had pictures of a few relatively recent bottlings ('97, '99, 2000, '03 and '07) from ~2012 but it appears I've done away with them.

All were purchased from the same bargain grocery chain (I assume) Glenn procured his '80.

I had a bottle of 1983. I drunk it last year, as far as I remember it was a nice Port.

Please folks, have you pictures of the bottles? Where did you buy them? How much?

Grocery Outlet, as I recall. A friend bought my bottle for me. I don't recall the exact price, other than it was very inexpensive for a VP, even a second label.

Mine were all Grocery Outlet as well. ~$25 for the 750ml and $10-$15 for the halves, when they had them. Only one or two vintages at a time, in no particular order.

All the labels were this identical format/look: https://www.vivino.com/wineries/tuke-ho ... porto-1999

(I know the header on the page says it's an LBV, but the picture is of the VP and is the thing I'm referencing)
