Have you tried Adnams? I recently wanted to get a bottle of 07 vintage port for friends' son's 1st birthday (the vintage was bottled in the year of his birth) & they seemed to be about the only multi-branch wine shop to have any 07's. They have a fairly easily accessible branch in Richmond, which is not a million miles from a popular smoking haunt (of yours?) in Teddington.

( PS - I've managed to find the link to the tasting notes I researched before making my purchase & I'm pretty sure it was Dows that I managed to get from Adnams in Richmond, but do check as that was 3 or 4 months ago.

If you haven't already seen them, do look at the tasting notes, they're the epitome of "comprehensive" ("...Six months and 350+ individual tasting notes later...):

You can add it to your basket without it coming up unavailable. Best of luck.

Sy, you could also give this place a try: http://www.specialitywines.com/portugal_wines.html

You can't order online however. Cases only (can do mixed).

It would appear that they last updated their 'Portugal' stock list yesterday.

How about Berry Bros. although that would mean having to come up to St James's Street (horrible place nothing else of interest nearby ;-)

Asda recently had the Dows Quinta do Bomfin Vintage 1998 on a special offer at around 25 from memory. One of the nicest ports I have tried for a long while.:hail:
