1985 Harvey (Martinez)
Fabulous. We were expecting a brown cooking/cooked Port of no specific merit. Couldn't have been more wrong. Colour was as expected for a lighter 1985. Nose was fresh with raspberry notes! Fruity and light but massively enjoyable this was perfect on the night and probably the best for drinking now, despite a brave but futile fightback from the England team... oops sorry, Single Quinta Malvedos. Went well with the praline chocolates.

Thanks a lot!
I've had a big beaming smile on my face as I've wallowed in the delights of the Forum. And then you go and have to remind me of my Long Lost friend! (That particular bottle)
I remember it being remarkably light in colour, and having subtle fruit flavours that gently fizzed across the tongue.

Where's me hanky. :cry:
