2003 Kopke White Colheita

The BFT 2021 sample tasting

Clear golden yellow. Lemon and apricot on the nose. In the mouth, lively, with some heat, warm apricot with a slightly dry finish. Refreshing, with a long finish.

NV Quinta da Devesa 20YO White

The BFT 2021 tasting sample

Lovely gleaming, clear amber. Nose has citrus and caramels with butterscotch and popcorn. In the mouth the citrus edge is complemented by the butterscotch syrup, leading to a long, long finish of oranges. Complex and rich. This port would stand up well to blue cheese.

2009 Quinta do Portal Colheita

The BFT 2021 sample tasting

Red-brown, slightly cloudy. Ripe apricot on the nose. Oranges with quite a full mouthfeel, not much acidity present, so heads for a softer finish.

2010 Poças Colheita

The BFT 2021 sample tasting

Red-brown, as like a 10YO, clear. Faint candy on the nose. On the palate, vanilla, honeycomb, with a dry finish. Very pleasant.

NV Poças 10YO Tawny

2021 The BFT tasting sample

Clear, radiant copper colour. Toffee and vanilla on the nose. In the mouth, the toffee and caramel majors, with hints of orange in the wings. Smooth and refined!

NV Kopke 10YO White

2021 The BFT tasting sample

Totally clear, vibrant butterscotch yellow. Faint citrus notes on the nose. In the mouth, fresh, luxurious, faint hints of vanilla and pineapple. Freshness gives way to a dry finish. This would be a fine aperitif relaxing on a sun lounger on a warm summer evening!

Re: Taylor's Terra Feita Vertical, Date TBC, B&F

*For completeness I should add that there are mentions to be found of several other Terra Feita wines. The Book suggests 1907 and 1911 as tasted by the late, great, Michael Broadbent. vintageport.se suggests there is a 1914 Terra Feita. However, no-one (else) seems to have ever encountered a bottle...

Re: 2021 Virtual Tasting #7 - Weds 31 March - Colheitas

Yes please. I don't believe I have any in stock, but a new wine shop (Amathus) has opened nearby and has some Calem colheita I believe. Otherwise it will be a Kopke...

Re: 1871 Cabral Port

I notice there are also 4 lots of 11/12 bottles of Cabral 40YO Tawny in the sale which look, to my inexpert eye, as though they were bottled in the 1960s. I don't intend to bid for any of these lots, but if someone buys one of the dozens and would like to share the lot with others, I would be inter...

Re-confirming thanks. I have def got 1970 and 1977, and maybe 1963, will need to check on the latter.

New date will be April 15th just after Easter when Charles is available

Would love to have a tasting on 18th - something Symingtons?
I could ask Charles or Tom if they can make a guest appearance.
How about a "Graham's VP" theme for the 18th?
