Postby Billy Klubb » Sun Oct 07, 2012 4:25 pm

just bottled 5 gallons. blended 2 different kits. aged in a Hungarian Oak barrel. fortified with E&J Brandy. the other half gallon went into my bulk aging pyment. I'm quite happy with the way it turned out.

Wine Expert & RJ Spangnols. the W.E. kit had a packet of oak powder, but skipped that since I aged in a barrel. I fermented both together.

hewiesidney wrote:Authentic port wine is grown in the Douro Valley of Portugal. Port is commonly recognized as a dark red, sweet dessert wine, but there are also white and tawny varieties. Wood port is aged in the bottle, while the small amount of vintage port that's made is aged briefly in wood before maturing in the bottle

I have a 1972 grand tawny port and was wondering if anyone had any idea what the approximate value is?
