Taylor’s has launched a limited edition of aged Port wine to celebrate every half century on the brand’s existence. ‘Taylor’s Single Harvest 1969’ is an absolutely exceptional wine and a worthy heir to the art of wood aging port that Taylor’s has improved over the centuries, “said Adrian Bridge, the general manager of Taylor’s.
This Taylor’s Single Harvest – that was made exclusively from 1969’s wines – is ready for consumption/to dring and is best served at temperatures between 12º and 16ºC. It is presented in the same classic frosted bottle as Taylor’s celebrated range of Aged Tawny Ports and is packed in a luxury oak gift box. It is available in the country’s best wine stores with the recommended retail price of €280.
The tasting notes presented this classic Port as having “deep mahogany colour with discreet olive highlights on the rim”. “Very fine, elegant nose, with an opulent core of wild honey, treacle and butterscotch infused with a spicy redolence of black pepper and cinnamon. Cedary cigar box aromas, savory scents of wild herbs and a discreet aura of fresh mint add a further layer of complexity”, Taylor presents.
They’ve also added that “the perfectly calibrated palate is lifted by a fresh acidity and delivers a wealth of rich mellow flavour, molasses, dried figs, sultanas and apricot confit. The finish is clean and bright, with ripe pear and mint and very discreet zesty citrus notes.”
