Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny Port 750ml
Taylor’s 10 Year Old Tawny is a superb example of an aged tawny port, made from selected red ports grown in the best vineyards of the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. The individual wines are laid down to age in oak casks of about 630 litres capacity for an average of 10 years, during which time they lose their initial dark purple-black colour and take on the delicate “tawny” hue from which the wine takes its name.
Mellow and elegant, combining delicate wood notes with rich aromas of mature fruit, Taylor’s aged tawnies are bottled for immediate drinking.
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: It is my opinion that Taylor’s tawny ports are the best of this type. When tasted against other tawnies, they all exhibit more aromatic personalities, greater fruit and ripeness, and a wonderful sweetness and length. The 10 Year Old Tawny is a personal favorite as well as the best bargain among these ports.
