A Bottle of Manly Warringah Sea Eagles Labelled Port from 1990

Here is a bottle of Fine Old Tawny Port from 1990. This bottle was recovered from storage on the Northern Beaches of Sydney (home town of the Manly Sea Eagles. The label reads as follows:

MANLY-WARRINGAH

“SEA EAGLES”

FINE OLD TAWNY PORT

CHRIS TAURO

U/21 REPRESENTATIVE 1990

BOTTLED BY TYRRELLS VINEYARDS POKOLBIN. ALC./VOL 18% COLOUR 150

PRESERVATIVE 220 ADDED. PRODUCT OF AUSTRALIA 750 ML.

The label also features the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles badge and the NSW Rugby League logo.

A quick search on Chris Tauro reveals this page about a player by that name playing for Balmain in 1994. It’s unclear if this is the same Chris Tauro referenced on the bottle.

A quick search on the place that bottled the port found a likely match for the vineyard.
