    Oscar,
    I couldn’t agree more. Port is from Portugal, period, end of story!

    Don’t be too sad, Oscar, as Australia is re-branding fortifieds. Sherry & Tokay have been renamed Apera & Topaque, Champagne (& many other French terms) is never used and Port is next on the list. To be honest, many Port-style wines in Australia are no longer labelled Port anyway so hopefully this change will happen sooner rather than later.

    Hi Alex,

    Good to know Australia is already working on re-branding fortifieds. In any case, I think any change in the legislation will come late and after some confusion be inflicted to the consumers. But better late than never.

    Thank you for your comments, from a WSETs A A Calem Port Award ;-)
