Other discounts included Graham 10yo @ £16, Taylor 10yo @ £17, Noval 10yo @ £20, Sandeman 20yo @ £30, Taylor Chip Dry White @ £10.63, Cavadinha 2002 @ £23.23, Cockburn Special Reserve @ £8, Taylor 2010 LBV @ £10.50, Fonseca Guimaraens 1998 @ £24, Graham 2011 LBV @ £10. All with a further discount if bought as 6 mixed bottles.

I've just received Tanner's latest newsletter through the post. Included with it was a flysheet giving details of their winter sale. Currently they are offering Churchill 2008 LBV @ £14 per bottle (inclusive of VAT).

It's actually better than that-their email says £12.50 a bottle and this is reflected on their website. Am tempted particularly as I will be in Shrewsbury in early February.

Is anyone interested in buying any port to top up stocks after Christmas?

If so, drop me a PM or an email and I'll let you know what's available.

I note that The Wine Society Exhibition vintage port has moved on to be the 1985 Smith Woodhouse. Not a bad port.

Seckfords have just sent out their weekly stock update, which includes 2 six packs of Morgan 1991 @ £180 for 6 ib

This is only the third time I have seen Morgan 1991 offered on the secondary market since we bought 72 cases of it in 2009 and drunk approximately 71.8 of those cases.

Browsing Marks and Spencer's today I notice they have an own brand 2011 port. It looks like Skeffington and at £26 it is not a bad price. They did a 25% off if you buy 6 recently (and interestingly 20% off 3 bottles) which would put it under £20/bottle which they are bound to repeat sooner or later. If I had not forsworn buying port which I was unlikely to live to drink I might have been tempted. I was quite impressed all round with their range of wine, not cheap but not expensive either.

From a mailing by a 'fine wine specialist' in my inbox this morning:
Kopke

One of the greatest producers of port since the 17th century. With their wide range of vinyards throughout the Douro, Kopke is one of the largest suppliers of Port wines in the world!
Niepoort

Niepoort has been founded by a Dutchman in 1842 and has focused its attention on the production of Vintage port wines. Niepoort succeeds to make very light and fruity port wines dispite the high temperatures.
What nonsense...
