De Krans The Last Cape Vintage Reserve Port 2010
Price: R240
Red and black fruit, spice and subtle chocolate. Well balanced – good fruit definition, fresh acidity and fine tannins. Not the most concentrated vintage and already surprisingly approachable.

Score: 90/100.

Muratie Ben Prins Cape Vintage 2009
Price: R170
Black fruit, vanilla and chocolate on the nose. Rich and broad with soft acidity and smooth tannins. Appears rather too sweet.

Score: 87/100.
