Half bottles of 1995 Fonseca Guimaraens vintage port for $35.75 available all over the province. I almost fell over when I saw them on the shelves. I look for 3 things in a vintage port:
-really good (1995 would have likely been a declared vintage if not for 91/92 and 94 declarations)
-fair price (price is lower than the lowest half bottle price on winesearcher)
Ports for sale in Ontario rarely check even one of those boxes, much less all three. Stock up! I did!!
(and there are 3 bottles left at Manulife that are going for $25!)
Oy vey. Now I have to buy some of these. You guys are killing me.
Champagne and Port. A starter and a finisher for dinners. Thanks for all the suggestions to my fellow LCBO comrads.
Thank you Bman! I picked up 4 today. Also happy that I got some of the 1991 in half bottles $21.95 USD a little while back. At the time I was unfamiliar with the Guimaraens but figured it was worth a go at the price.
My pleasure! I've already tried one and liked it a lot (the price made it taste even better!) Missed the splits of the 91 some how though....
