Niepoort Garrafeira Tasting

Garrafeira.jpg Wow, what a tasting - I always liked the Niepoort Garrafeiras, being the best of both worlds from Vintage and Colheita. Overall amazing Ports. Without being fat or direct on the palate, they possess a fantastic balance and an incredible length. Wine of the night was the 1938... follo...

Quinta da Oliveirinha, produced by Alves de Sousa, was also produced for the first time as well as Talentvs, produced by Seara d'Ordens.
Only Talentvs or do they produce the regular VP as well?

Re: Taylor's historic limited edition

As far as I remember from ProWein, this is a special reserve Tawny Port, average of less than 10y old.

The important thing here is the bottle, you would not purchase this for the Port.

Best

Re: Cockburn Vertical, Tue 2nd Oct 2018

Dear Axel ,
Very nice to hear from you.
I have the best memories from that great tasting, without doubt one of the most enjoyable and interesting events in all my profissional life !
Also Cockburn's 1908 was, probably, the best Vintage I taste ever !
Please send my best regards to all,
Abraço,
Miguel

Sorry, out in the fields for too long. Hope not to have caused trouble.

Here is my food order:

Cornish crab salad with ciabatta toasts

Sirloin steak, blue, with skinny fries,
+ Green beans with shallots;

Something cheesy at the end?

Thanks

I have an option on two very old bottles that would take the cost per person from £240 to £300 including Port and tip for our friends at B&F. Food would be on top at cost.
Yes, please...
