TAYLORS 40 YEAR OLD TAWNY
Made entirely from the grapes grown on Taylor’s own properties, Taylor’s is one of the few remaining houses which still produces a 40 Year Old Aged Tawny Port.
Tiny quantities of this wine are made. Decades of evaporation and ageing 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 flavour.
A sublime port of very great age which shows the old olive-gold hue of its many years in cask. Decades of evaporation have concentrated this extraordinary wine to an exceptional density, with a powerful nose of dried fruit, honey and a touch of spice. Impressions of nutmeg, roasted coffee and an intense nuttiness converge both in the bouquet and on the palate. The wine´s rich, intense, voluptuous, almost viscous texture culminate in a finish of incredible length.
Alluring, with a warm date and gently mulled fig and peach core gliding through, while light alder, bitter almond and candied ginger notes add sparkle and texture along the edges. Frankly sweet through the finish but with the energy for balance. Drink now.
