Actually, scratch that. I had enquired about the Ports of Sogevinus Masterclass, which is now no longer, but instead a Colheitas Masterclass! Anyway. Further request made.

Same here. I think Danny/Ben forward the requests to the appropriate masterclass organiser, and often the organiser may wish to wait and consider all applications before assigning places (rather than purely on a first-come allocation) but in this case an acknowledgement of the request would be appreciated while pending confirmation or otherwise of securing a place.

It's a great shame that the man whose idea this was (AW77) can't come. We should bring enough sample jars to post the whole vertical to him!

50 shades of shame? Otherwise known as auto-incorrect.

Those things are supposed to learn your habits and get better over time. I swear the one on my phone gets worse, and it has never managed to figure out that:

correctly-spelled-word + v + correctly-spelled-word

is just two correctly spelled words with a mis-typed SPACE in-between. :roll:

As Daniel already mentioned, I cannot fly to London for the BFT (due to family obligations). But it's not as bad as it may look at first:
I already tasted the 1975 at the lodge and recently bought three bottles of the 2000. I can get the 1990 and 1992 for not too high a price at the Garrafeira Nacional for tasting at home. I will miss the opportunity to taste the '81 though (especially after all the praise heaped upon it by Dirk).
What really is a pity is that I will not be able to meet more of the TPF-people in person. But I hope to make it to some tasting in autum (perhaps to the still pending '92 tasting).
And I'm pretty sure that the Niepoort LBV vertical will confirm my idea that it is worth laying down Niepoort LBVs (as it is with the unfiltered Warre's).

I have Ni 95, 96, 98, 01, 07 as well as a 97 Passadouro LBV.
Would be happy to share, but it will be a long term project, as it may well be only next year that we will be in the area again.

Dirk is now running the Niepoort LBV Vertical as a masterclass at the BFT in London next month. It seems unlikely now that we will repeat the experiment, especially given that we were going to be sourcing the bottles directly from Dirk. Full review to be posted at TPF.

Just had confirmation from Danny about the master classes. Woohoo.

I should have updated also; I have received confirmation of sign-up.

Dear all who were lucky enough to get to this masterclass: How did you like the Niepoort LBV tasting? Would you be so kind and share your tasting notes with the rest of us?
