In Streatham, on Saturday 30th January 2016, Mr and Mrs Gandhi were the guests of Mr and Mrs Wiseman, as was Mrs W’s brother.

Inappropriately for the food, it had been decided to sample a recent delivery from Seckfords: Malvedos 1986, Malvedos 1987, Bomfim 1992, and Cavadinha 1992. On decanting at circa 2pm, the first bottle of WC92 smelt slightly bacterial. Not happy, so a second was decanted, the two being unimaginatively labelled #1 and #2. There was also a fraction of the previous night’s bottle of Dow 2004 crusted.

All were good. The Malvedos are not ready: still heavy with sweet fruit. I said to wait 5 years; Simon said 7 years. The DB92 and both bottles of WC92 were deliciously in their perfect drinking window, time having softened them but not yet faded them. If you have these ’92s tucked away, awaiting their moment, well, it has come.

The Ghhandis were excellent company, the children played well without much killing each other, and even the Ghhahndi dog didn’t give me a hearty. Hurray!

I fear that despite your generosity in terms of volume, that you will not have qualified for a Durand gift from the Gandhi household. I can't imagine how any of us will be able to impress Mr & Mrs G with our port collection after his experience at Christmas.

Having opened a Malvedos 1986 & 1987 recently I am inclined to agree. Still amazed at what good value these were!
