1996 Graham Malvedos

1996 Graham's Malvedos - half bottle
From the same batch as this one.

Once again the cork exploded into a thousand crumbs. It seems these little bottles have perhaps spent their life standing up or in a warm environment. The others purchased at the same time will be consumed sooner rather than later.

The remnents of man-flu prevent me from determining whether or not this bottle suffers from the same VA problem as the previous one.

Those little corks are evil, I remember having to make use of a clamp and a hydraulic winch.

I hope the full bottles aren't suffering with VA, I have a few.
Port is basically a red drink
