Fortified Wines

As someone who has a deep and abiding love of fortified wines, I am always waiting eagerly to see the results of our fortified flights – in fact, I usually taste through them all in the back room, make my own notes, and see what the judges thought. This year’s results feature some great fortified wines, in a range of styles. Tawny port again reigns supreme, but make sure to check out this excellent LBV and a lovely white port (very cocktail friendly too). Tom Firth
