My local Tesco has just stocked its shelves with the new Tesco Finest Vintage Port, this one is also from the Symingtons but is now the 2007 vintage. Still £20 a bottle (at full price). Next to it is the Malvedos 2004, currently reduced from £27.50 to also be £20 per bottle.
2004 Malvedos is very good. That's a steal at that price.

Sainsbury have their spring sale on - 25% off when you buy 6 bottles or more, including fortified and sparkling wines.

That makes the Taste the Difference Vintage Port £15 per bottle and the Sandeman Unfiltered LBV less that £13.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

If I look online, the T&Cs (or if I try to make a 6 bottle basket) say all fortified wines are excluded. Have you taken advantage of this deal in store?

I think Sainsbury's have changed the T&C to exclude fortified from these offers at least 6 months ago now. Just Waitrose left now that still includes Port in these offers.

Yeah I was in the car today and heard a Sainsbury’s advert for this offer and it said fortified are excluded.

Re: Port for sale by retailer - Malvedos 84

Might be of interest...

Corney & Barrow have just listed three 12-bottle OWC cases of Malvedos 84 @ £790 DP.

Guess this is now fairly rare?
