Its a Stone Terrace day

Post by Axel P » 10:00 Fri 20 Sep 2019

It can be easy and rewarding to organise "Full verticals".

As there are only 4 years of Stone Terraces so far, it will be fantastic to see them side by side today and next week on location in the Douro:

I never had a vertical before, where I rated all Ports with at least 19/20...

More later.

Possibly a cask sample?

Can be done for the newer super-cuvées, for Vesuvio, for Churchill, and for those single-quintas that started selling only post-1986. Theoretically easiest for Quinta das Liceras; in practice not so easy.

For GST, splendidly rewarding.

We did a "full vertical" of Stone Terraces this past Spring before the 2017 was declared, and my article on it appeared in the FTLOP newsletter.

It was splendid.
