Wine/Valuation for a bottle of port

Question
Hi

My father would like to know how much and how old a bottle of port is he purchased at least 30 years ago (late 70's). The label has Harry Draytons Descendants Family Port series 3 or 4?

We live in Sydney.

Thank you
Leza

Answer
Hi Leza,

I'm afraid I can't answer you personally about this bottle as my experience is of real Port from Portugal but Drayton's might be able to help regarding the age (http://www.draytonswines.com.au/) as they show contact details on their site.

Isle of Wine (http://www.isleofwine.com.au/) currently list several different bottlings of Drayton's 'port' and a browse there may help you find the retail value of your father's. They might also be willing to make an offer to buy it for stock - which would give him the resale value if he had it in mind to sell.

Regards,

David

Expertise

I have 40 year`s experience tasting, collecting and enjoying wines as an amateur enthusiast. Bordeaux and Port are my particular loves and I regularly buy and sell at auction. I have a good library and frequently participate in on-line discussions. I can only help with valuations, buying or selling if you tell me where you live as there are many variations around the world.

Experience

I would not feel confident answering questions on German wines or those of the USA, South Africa or Australia. But please check my prestige rating and browse "Browse Past Answers" at the top of this page to see if I'm the one you want to help on everything else! (PLEASE don't forget to tell me where you are if you want my estimation of value or help buying or selling!)

Organizations
I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
