‘Defined, fresh and detailed, it astounded us with waves of complexity wafting from the glass: candied figs, melon rind, nuts, molasses and a touch of cold coffee. The palate is rich, but not sticky while the finish is deep, spicy and delicious! George Spies was working at Monis in the ‘60s; did he perhaps make this immortal legend too?’ - Roland Peens (3 August 2015)

‘Excellent, old wood-aged Port, vintage-dated 1948, of which three issues have been made. Their labels reproduce rare old South African stamps.’- Dave Hughes, Wine Buyer’s Guide 1993 edition. 4*
