I'm curious as you yourself are a wine distributor, when you say 'reconditioned', you mean on recork 'fortification' could have been added? The fill level is mid shoulder, if I recall, consistent with the stated age - if it had been refortified, it should be higher. The rebottle was done by Whitwham’s & Company Wines Ltd. which from what I understand was a reputable firm back in the day. I do agree with a bottle this old, and a rather small house, what actually is the grape's provenance is likely the makings of a 19th century detective story.
