Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

Blind for a laugh. Relatively easy to handle if only half a dozen of us.

I am afraid I am sorry too. Unless anyone can volunteer to look after Zac, I can not make it tomorrow either. Very disappointed as I always try to make a point of a wet January. I hope you enjoy some fine juice.

Sorry, I’m not in an office today - but could well be an early(ish) arriver.
