The Bishop of Norwich, The Liberator 2015
Tasting Notes: 

Do you know the Bishop of Norwich…? Set to be the Liberators first ever seasonal offering, this single barrel of Cape ‘Port’, aged in cask for two years, could well become an annual release. Produced from a vineyard planted back in 1965, this field blend includes a selection of classic Portuguese grape varieties.A typically British initiative, the tradition of ‘passing the Port’ dates back centuries and comes with its own particular etiquette. It dictates that once a diner has poured a glass for his neighbour on the right, the decanter should be passed immediately to the left, with the vessel not halting from its clockwise progression around the table until such time as the decanter is emptied. If someone is seen to be failing in their duties, the breach is brought to their attention by enquiring, ‘Do you know the Bishop of Norwich?’ So, raise a glass to Post-Brexit Britain, when we might once again align ourselves with the former colonies and welcome back Australian ‘Sherry’ and South African ‘Port’.
