Wed 24 April - BFT 4 2013

Post by AHB » 23:21 Fri 10 May 2013

April 24th 2013 was the date on which the fourth BFT took place at Glazier's Hall in London. A wide variety of fortified wines were on show to the trade, including a range of 2011 Vintage Ports around 300 other ports, madeiras, sherries etc. and six tutored tastings.

The show continues to grow and was extremely successful. I concentrated mainly on the 2011 ports, the Ramos Pinto / Niepoort tutored tasting and only had the chance to try a handful of other ports.

Other TPF members have already posted tasting notes for some of the wines at the show, including the following:
10 yo Niepoort White Tawny
