PORT

#2
Um, sorry, I couldn't help there. I've never had a bottle of port keep any port in it long enough to re-cork it.

i say 2 days if you use a a wine pump stopper, it pushes the air out and maintains an airtight seal.
wine oxidises quickly, thats why it taste shite after a while.

Especially vintage port even with a vacuvin wine pump it'll only last a 3-4days at its best, unlike LBV which 'll keep going for a few weeks... sorry to bear bad news

Just after a bit of advice.

Given a lovely bottle of 1987 Port this evening and would love to sample away.

Could anyone enlighten me as to how long it will keep once opened but re-corked? :?
Why would you need to re-cork it?

You think you have got problems; I have a bottle of Cockburns 1955 vintage!

The sort of thing you open to celebrate shagging Keira Knightley....

It's so good, I will probably never open it

It'll probably lose some character/flavour after being opened for more than a week but a good quality will last longer in a cool, dark place. However, if you're worried about it not keeping after you've opened it get some friends 'round to help you polish it off.

Somehow a friend received a bottle in Iraq. Tasted like mulled wine at that temperature and didn't last too long; very thirsty out there.

The buggers would have to sprint round if it was an unopened bottle in my house!

Don't forget to decant in through a fine linen cloth! (Although I find a coffee filter works much better).

Vintage always has plenty of sediment, if you don't filter its like drinking mud.
