Tawny - Hanwood, NSW
The fortified market around the world has gone a bit like the stock market lately.
The causes are a bit more obvious than the crazies at the ASX. When the booze buses started appearing and the "one for the road" became a big antisocial no no the fortifieds took a dive. This has left the big producers with lots of stock just sitting there and getting better by the year.
So we are the lucky ones to be able to sell it on taste and it is a bargain! Compare this to the mad days of the Racehorse Collector Series that were all the rage a few years ago. This wine is better and you can afford to fill a proper barrel with it.
