2019 Niepoort

cask sample, purple blackish colour, tight rim and with an opaque centre, restrained fragrant nose after roses and violets. Very fine taste after cherries and a bit cranberries. Overall a fresh, slightly spicy, moreish fruit taste. The finish develops over time from initially very sweet and closed i...

Re: 1908 v. 1912 (possible date 22nd October 2022)

Have no 08 but have Niepoort Colheita 12 which I think should qualify. At least for me this is the greatest Colheita I drank so far.

Re: 2011 Horizontal - London, Sunday 23rd April 2051

Dude! stop being so pessimistic! In 2051 I would be 81 and I admit given my current weight and lifestyle It is looks unlikely I would make it. But I still signed up! Not sure if you watched a series called "All creatures great and small" so far but when Siegfried and James signed up for WII they dra...

Re: NV Asda Reserve Port

Got my hands on 3 bts today. ASDA kindly substituted the initial order quantity down. But they were very nice and all went smoothly at click&collect. JDAW1's assessment is correct. Not a great port but at 3.98£ you cannot go wrong. You notice the watery port apperance when it is running down the gla...

Re: I'm going to be having a bad week...

@winesecretary - good choice on Niepoort 2017! However as JDAW1 has not done it yet; you need to consider having a double magnum section section in your cellar as well. For this format and bigger formats there is also a need e.g. if you are having a disastrous week or friends like JDAW1 popping by f...

Re: I'm going to be having a bad week...

Hmm in my view GC77 is a fantastic port if not TCA contaminated. Some say GC77 share the same base juice as SWC77. SWC77 is not TCA infested though. The statistics of the tasting notes for GC77 do not lie. However the TCA problem can be easily avoided by focussing on GC77 Magnums which are not TCA a...

Re: Informal Outdoor Summer Tasting?

Yep, count me in. In summer I usually drink young VP, Crusted or Tawnies/Colheitas. Older VP imho do not work as well in summer. I should somewhere have mag of Croft 11 that would be perfect. After I misplaced it I should make an effort to relocate it. Hope I have not drunk it and forgotten. Or as D...

Re: TPF pre-NYE party 29th December 2020

We all brought Cockburn 1955. It did make for a splendid dinner. “ A very boring offline ”, as reported. I disagree! It was not a boring offline! Wine and port were nice! The accustomed reader of this forum may have expected more variety in different shippers however in the old days port bottled by...

Re: Port in movies, dramas and tv series

Watched over the weekend parts of the old TV series "All Creatures Great and Small". In S1 Ep3 sends Mrs Pumphrey a Fortnum&Masons hamper to James Herriot containing 3 bts of Grahams 1920 and 3bts of 80 year old brandy for improving her pudel Tricki Woo's health. In Germany the series was called "De...

Hi,

looking fwd to Wednesday. Hope the aircon works as it is quite warm outside these days! My choice of port will be definitely affected by the warmth outside! Obviously it will be blinded by tinfoil.
