Taylor Fladgate 40 Year Old Tawny Port 750ml

Quick Overview

An incredible example of an old Tawny port. A rarity, as few houses will make a 40 year old tawny. This wine is olive gold in color with rich caramel, butterscotch, hazelnut flavors. The concentration in this port also produces a wine with amazing length, which lingers beautifully in the palate.

Taylor Fladgate 40 Year Old Tawny Port 750ml

Taylor’s 40 Year Old Tawny is a very rare old tawny blend, produced in limited quantities. Selected red ports produced in the eastern areas of the Douro Valley, including Taylor’s own estates, are matured in seasoned oak casks in Taylor’s cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. Here the cool and damp coastal climate encourages a slow and gentle ageing process producing aromas of great complexity and finesse.
The 40 years of aging in wood have concentrated this wine almost to an essence, producing intense and complex nutty and spicy aromas and a dense and concentrated palate full of rich mellow flavor.
The 40 Year Old tawny is bottled when ready to drink and does not require any further aging in bottle.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: It is my opinion that Taylor’s ports are the best of this type. When tasted against other tawnys, they all exhibit more aromatic personalities, greater fruit and ripeness, and a wonderful sweetness and length.

WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 95

WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: A superb wine, elegance and weight combined magisterially. It has all the right mature flavours, ripe fruit, intense marmalade and concentration. This is a wine with a great reputation, and the taste doesn’t let that reputation down.
