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...

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.

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!

Watched over the weekend parts of the old TV series "All Creatures Great and Small".

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.

Hi,

given my current circumstances at work and privately sadly i have to drop of this tasting as it does not make sense to occupy a place that I most likely cannot use. Enjoy!
