    If you want fortified you can't go past stanton & killeen.
    They are still there in Rutherglen.
    They can't make a normal wine, but fortified is fantastic.

    Nice one Stinkalot.

    Dan Murphy stocks S&K vintage ports still, with enough age to show its promise.

    S&K also do a stonking Durif. Not everyone's cuppa.

    Just an update re OP:

    it wasn't on the shelves for a while at my local DM but is back again. Staff say it's the last.

    Seems to me to be a new bottling. Has more mouthfeel. Perhaps a bit sweeter?

    Still stunning value.
    Cheers, Ern

    These were advertised last week through the Woolworths reward scheme. $10 each with free delivery. I got a half dozen, very nice. They're still about.

    Good score.

    I haven't seen the old Reynella Vintage Ports for some time sadly. With 15 years on them (apart from the '79) they were fabulous.

    Hardy's don't seem to do theirs any more either.

    A good Portuguese Late Bottled Vintage is in a diff. league, and price bracket , but great for a special occasion.

    Default Portuguese Ports

    I'm not a fan of Portuguese Late Bottled Vintage. That's a marketing name for their cheaper stuff. The real stuff is Portuguese Vintage Port. Of course you can pay hundreds a bottle for it. But if you buy it through Langton's auctions and share the cost of a bottle at say $100 with a few friends, you'll be amazed. Nothing like any Australian Port I've tasted. More like a deep fruity table wine with great length.

    Disagree. LBV is not the same as a vintage. It's a cross btwn that and a tawny (more oak ageing than a vintage, less than a tawny) and a good one at DM will set you back around $45.

    Yep - see post #16.

    But that's an oddity, a single-year tawny, not a vintage port. The only other IIRC was the classic Para port.

    It seems the 16yo is all done, all finished, but a 10yo replacement is on the shelves, could be worth a try.

    There were a few bottles back in my local store a few weeks back. You can always check online.

    Default Reynella

    Can Murphy at Burwood, NSW has the Reynella 10 yr old Vintage in 375ml for about $12 . Last time I tried it I thought it was good value.
    Cheers
