Hi Martin,

A quick question - are you bringing all of the bottles you've listed, or are you offering some for adoption?

If you want something unusual, I could bring Burmester.

Alex
Top Ports in 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.

2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!

Hi Alex

That's what I happen to have ... Happy to have people adopt or bring there own.

Burmester would be a great to bring ...

Cheers

Sorry, should have checked the agreed abbreviation but for C read Ca (or Calem to be totally clear).
