‘Amazingly, in the Museum Class comprising ports made from grapes harvested more than 10 years ago and typically long since sold out ex-cellar, the winning wine, a KWV Tawny, is still available for purchase nearly 70 years down the line from the company’s Wine Emporium in Paarl – for R6500 a bottle!
Due to the age of the wine it is sold “as is” for collector purposes as the drinkability cannot be guaranteed.
