Differences between different country's ports?

Fastro | Nov 17, 2011 02:59 PM

Hi,

I was introduced to ports down in Australia a few years back and have assembled a few bottles from multiple wineyards that I visited on several trips down there. I have done a lot or reading recently on ports and was curious what differences there are between what I have been drinking and something like Dows, Grahams, Sandemans, etc. There is a lot of literature out there on Tawnys, Rubys, LBVs etc but nothing that I have run across discusses the differences between what is produced in different countries. I was just curious if anyone had any insight.

I was also curious if anyone had any favorites from Australia they could recommend? I am trying to add to my cellar and try new things. I have been a fan of the older tawnys but am open to hearing anybody's suggestions.

Thanks for the help!

Dan
