40 Year old Port
I’ve been saving this now for just under 10 years for a very special occasion. When my Dad decided to come and visit midway through Chemo I knew it was now or never. I was nervous as hell, the bottle has not been stored in the best of places over years for various reasons, mostly ignorance. As I tried to get the cork out I realised that it has basically started to disintegrate and it was just a soggy ball of cork, so care had to be taken. But we got most of the cork out without much of a fuss. Then we poured the Port into, wait for it… Champagne glasses! Yea I know could have done better than that. In fact the next day my Dad went out and bought us a whole set of lovely port glasses. But lets get back to the Port. By now I was really anxious, I did not know if the Port was going to be any good after all these years. Then came the first sip….
And the second….
It was heaven in a glass.
Here is a picture of the bottle and a champagne glass:
