Amazingly light and spritely on the palate with sweet black currant and a lovely acidity. Tannins are very smooth. The flavours are wonderfully persistent on the aftertaste and finish with the black currant merging into a strawberry finish that is kept fresh and lively by the acidity. Great length. A wonderful fresh alternative to Port.

Following on from the success of last year’s release, this is Rick’s second seasonal offering. This Cape ‘Port’, is akin to a true Vintage style, designed for maturing in bottle and should age for many years to come.

This release comes from father and daughter team – Carel and Margaux – the Nel’s are the most celebrated ‘Port’ style producers in the Cape. Located in the sleepy dorp of Calitzdorp, the wine blended from selection of classic Portuguese grape varieties.

A typically British initiative, the tradition of ‘passing the Port’ dates back centuries and comes with its own particular etiquette. It dictates that once a diner has poured a glass for his neighbour on the right, the decanter should be passed immediately to the left, with the vessel not halting from its clockwise progression around the table until such time as the decanter is emptied.

If someone is seen to be failing in their duties, the breach is brought to their attention by enquiring, ‘Do you know the Bishop of Norwich?’ For those who know the true meaning of this euphemism, it serves as a timely reminder, while for those who don’t, they are politely informed ‘He’s a terribly good chap, but he always forgets to pass the Port…’
