Re: Wednesday 28th April 2021 - Online Churchill tasting with the Port Forum

Alex - you likely may already have done, but could you pass on my/our thanks to Johnny, Jamie and Ben for hosting us last night. They were supremely generous with their time and I really enjoyed getting a lot of in-depth insight into the Churchill story, the philosophy for their winemaking, and lots...

Re: Wednesday 28th April 2021 - Online Churchill tasting with the Port Forum

It's looking like I won't now be able to make this Alex. Should become free around 9pm if the session is planned to continue once the "official" part is over. If you're still managing numbers, Wolfgang was on a waiting list and could be added?

2003 Kopke White Colheita

The BFT 2021 sample tasting

Clear golden yellow. Lemon and apricot on the nose. In the mouth, lively, with some heat, warm apricot with a slightly dry finish. Refreshing, with a long finish.

NV Quinta da Devesa 20YO White

The BFT 2021 tasting sample

Lovely gleaming, clear amber. Nose has citrus and caramels with butterscotch and popcorn. In the mouth the citrus edge is complemented by the butterscotch syrup, leading to a long, long finish of oranges. Complex and rich. This port would stand up well to blue cheese.

2009 Quinta do Portal Colheita

The BFT 2021 sample tasting

Red-brown, slightly cloudy. Ripe apricot on the nose. Oranges with quite a full mouthfeel, not much acidity present, so heads for a softer finish.

2010 Poças Colheita

The BFT 2021 sample tasting

Red-brown, as like a 10YO, clear. Faint candy on the nose. On the palate, vanilla, honeycomb, with a dry finish. Very pleasant.

NV Poças 10YO Tawny

2021 The BFT tasting sample

Clear, radiant copper colour. Toffee and vanilla on the nose. In the mouth, the toffee and caramel majors, with hints of orange in the wings. Smooth and refined!

NV Kopke 10YO White

2021 The BFT tasting sample

Totally clear, vibrant butterscotch yellow. Faint citrus notes on the nose. In the mouth, fresh, luxurious, faint hints of vanilla and pineapple. Freshness gives way to a dry finish. This would be a fine aperitif relaxing on a sun lounger on a warm summer evening!

Re: Taylor's Terra Feita Vertical, Date TBC, B&F

*For completeness I should add that there are mentions to be found of several other Terra Feita wines. The Book suggests 1907 and 1911 as tasted by the late, great, Michael Broadbent. vintageport.se suggests there is a 1914 Terra Feita. However, no-one (else) seems to have ever encountered a bottle...

Re: 2021 Virtual Tasting #7 - Weds 31 March - Colheitas

Yes please. I don't believe I have any in stock, but a new wine shop (Amathus) has opened nearby and has some Calem colheita I believe. Otherwise it will be a Kopke...
