At the very start of 2015, Aussie Wine Guy was a guest at regular contributor Ted’s wedding in Melbourne, Australia.  It was my honour to be responsible for the careful decanting of a precious 40 year old bottle of port from Rutherglen stalwart Stanton & Kileen.

The bottle had been bought for Ted by his father, when he was born (sorry Ted, it does give away your age!).  Needless to say, the task of removing the cork without tainting the bottle was not easy, but was managed very carefully with skill and focus.
