9 bottles of 2000 Niepoort Secundum. I have been much enjoying the halves of Fortnum & Mason 2000 that I have been drinking (which is Secundum also); I find the higher total acidity and very slightly lower sugar level refreshing.

3 x Croft 2000
2 x Vesuvio 1991

...and inspired by recent LBV conversation (and aware that this is an area where my cellar is under stocked), so made use of the 25% off at Waitrose Cellar to get 4 each of:
- Graham’s LBV 2013
- Sandeman LBV 2015
- Warre’s LBV 2007

3 x Vargellas 1995 en demi
3 x Croft Roeda 2005 en demi

...both from Tanners as part of a selection of half bottles of wine for drinking solus over the next few weeks/months.

I have found the 2000 Croft to be passable, but somewhat non-memorable.

I had a similar opinion until about a month ago when I tried it for the first time in about 3 years. It has transformed itself into a delicious and well balanced Port that i would enjoy drinking now or in the future.

Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)

Bit of a turkey shoot on the auction circuit right now..

Have just bought a case (12) of T03 for a few pennies over £400 all-in - I think that's a shade less than the release price..

I think I was bidding in the same sale as Tom (on different lots). Croft 91 at £31/bt all in and Fonseca 92 at £50/bt... I'm very happy with those.
