I've just got back from Waitrose, where even I was unable to resist the price of the Sandeman 2011 LBV @ £11. 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...

Sainsbury have their "buy 6 get 25% off" sale going again. Particular port deals I spotted were Sainsbury Taste The Difference Vintage Port 2003 (SFE) @ £20 discounted to £15 if you buy a mixed six and Graham Crusted bottled 2011 already discounted down to £15 so roughly £13 per bottle in a mixed six.

Same offer noted here except that the TTD2003 was not discounted; only the Grahams Crusted (also currently 2011 at this location).

Sorry, my poor phrasing. The TTD2003 is priced at £20 with no discounts. Buy 6 bottles and you get the 25% discount on the TTD2003 which brings it down to £15. That's £15 for a stonkingly good bottle of vintage port people (unless the blend is different from last time, of course).

Thanks for the heads up- the local Saintsbury to the office still has the 2002 Graham's Crusted and so took the last four bottles (they also had the 98 TTD VP).

Thanks. Local Sainsbury had only 2 bottles of TTD2003 and 1 Crusted 2011.

Sainsbury is running its buy 6 and get 25% off again (until just after the BH). The TTD2003 still at my local at £15 (with the reduction).

My local Tesco (Horwich, Bolton) had a couple bottles of Dow's quinta do bomfin reduced to clear from £27 down to £21.73 and I picked up the last bottle of 2005.

So just a heads up really there might be a few bottles left in your local stores

Waitrose turn for a discounted offer but only three bottles required to save 25%. Looking at the 2011VP showing on-line, this makes the SW2011 £200 for 6 (better than the on release price).

First post.. just bought and opened 2012 Niepoort LBV (Tanners £19.95) - it's good but still young. Will be better in 3-5 years or so.

I've received a £30 off voucher for use at Majestic Wines which I'm not going to use. It's valid on any purchase in-store or online with a value of £100+ and expires on 2 October.

If anyone would like the voucher then please let me know and I can either give you the details by PM or bring it with me on Thursday.

In the last month, my local Waitrose has gone from having Sandeman 2011 LBV, to briefly stocking the 2012 LBV (bottled 2016) and just a week later has already moved to the 2013 LBV (bottled 2017). I am not sure if that is because for most of that period it has been on sale at 25% off or just over £12 and so stocks having been rapidly turning over. It does seem strange that the 2012 was barely available in this particular store. The 2011 is a beast that will last years, the 2012 was much more approachable for drinking now, a silky smooth fruit bomb. And the 2013 is back to being a tannic beast, but maybe not as much as the 2011 is. Also of note is that both the 2012 and 2013 have the new Sandeman label design style.

Bargain Warre’s Otima 20YO

If you like a tawny, check your local Lidl for a clearance special on Warre’s Otima 20YO (500ml). The shelf ticket will state £19.99 but at the till they come up on a clearance price of £7.99. I just relieved my local Lidl of 3 bottles for £23.97 giving a Mag worth of 20YO tawny for more than a tenner less than a standard bottle of Sandeman 20YO, Taylor’s 20YO or Graham’s 20YO. Personally I don’t think the Otima is quite up to the level of those three, but it is amazing value nonetheless.

That is a bargain but won't be able to look until the weekend.
