The set-up might be familiar – a small glass of something deep red sitting upon a book with a scattering of almonds. This photo was taken during the Wine with Cheese session from a few weeks back. Obviously a little photoshop play (a topaz filter) has resulted in an old fashioned look (which I rather like). The ‘port’ is actually a Grant Burge 10 year old Tawny from Australia. The book is the 1967 issue of Stanley Gibbons Great Britain Specialised Stamp Catalogue Vol 2: Edward VII-George VI, acquired for 10p from a charity shop. The almonds were a gift brought back from a retreat in Southern Spain. The glass is one of just two now surviving from a junk shop purchase in Cape Town, South Africa.

A Glass of Port – the latest in the regular Sunday Wine Snapshots series highlighting photographs with a wine related theme, whether bottles, glasses, vineyards or the back scenes of wineries.
