1994 Petre

Initial entry of chlorine but that blew off with some air time.

Dusty cocoa powder and cranberries flood the nose leaving a very pretty fruity smell.

Tastes of strawberry liquor blended with kirsch liquor backed by a ton of brown sugar finishing slightly short and sweet.

A very interesting port and one I wouldn't mind picking up more of at 30$/bottle.

I have drunk (and still have) some of the Petre 1995. I didn't realise that there was a 1994 made.

My understanding is that this is a "second label" port made by Dirk from grapes not used for the Niepoort blend, which is intended to mature more quickly than the full blend.

My understanding is that they made this wine especially for a big customer from Belgium who s name (or sons name is Peter (Petre)). It should be the original stuff in there, no blending.
