According to Paula Goddard, wine and food writer on 5 December (http://www.paulagoddard.com/component/content/article/13-wine/177-maynards-ports-at-aldi.html):

If you want a similar flavour and experience to Croft's 1991 Vintage Port but at a sixth of the price then look no further than Maynard's ports on special offer this Christmas at Aldi. Maynard's Late Bottled Vintage 2007 is selling at £8.99 and the 10 years old Aged Tawny is a pound more at £9.99, but only while stocks last. And they won't last long because both ports have my vote as Bargains of the Week.


She was right about the amazing quality of these ports, but wrong about how long they'd stay in the stores. Incredibly, there are still some left at various stores, and at some stores they're even cheaper - marked down to £7.99 for the 10 years old Aged Tawny and £8.99 for the Late Bottled Vintage 2007.

You might have to check out your local branch for stocks (there are none left in mine, which did have them at the reduced prices) but it's well worth looking if you like a really good port.

Maynard's Late Bottled Vintage Port 2007

Aromas of damson, plum, black cherry and fruit cake. The flavours are fruity and rich: deep damson, dried cherry, dark chocolate and black pepper. An ideal after dinner slurp.

Maynard's 10 years old Aged Tawny Port

Aromas of toffee, raisins and nuts with some strawberry fruitiness. The flavours are light and fruity and reminiscent of a dry Marsala or a sweetened Fino sherry. An ideal aperitif.

But rather more than you, I'm guessing.
And certainly a rather better grasp of basic grammar.

??? please explain.
My wife brought home a bottle of the LBV from the local Aldi's on Friday. She said she would give it to her brother for Christmas. That was changed as soon as I saw the label. Bro will now be getting a pleasant Rioja.
