To celebrate the 325º anniversary of the prestigious Taylor’s house, this has created a special and limited edition of Port Wine.
This is an old Tawny, made by the house winemaker David Guimaraens, from wine batches of future 10, 20, 30 and 40 year old Tawnies.
Taylor’s intended to not only celebrate its ancient mastery in cask ageing and in the production of the best wine batches, but also to recreate its first expedition of Port Wine from Vila Nova de Gaia docks to England, taken by Taylor’s founder Job Bearsley at 1692.
Vibrant but with a dry density, on the nose it’s possible to enjoy aromas of candied fruit, coffee beans covered with rich chocolate and delicate notes of spices.
The palate is complex and luxurious. A slight acidity from soft notes of blackberries, perfectly combined by the sweetness and richness of toffee flavours and warm notes of gingerbread. A complex but approachable and delicious tawny.
Quinta do Vesuvio Vintage 1998 is a Port wine created in Quinta's do Vesuvio most insufficient harvest ever. The bottle of this wine should be stored horizontally in a dark place and with a slightly fresh temperature. It presents an intense red colour with purple reflexions and wild berries and black cherries flavours. Enjoy this edition of 4, 5Lt (6 bottles) Vintage wine.
Dow's Quinta Sra. Da Ribeira Vintage 2012 is a wine with aroma of violets from the vineyards of Touriga Franca which are oriented to the South and in the year of its production reached a perfect ripeness. In this wine is still possible to find slight aromas of blackberry and currant, making it fragrant and fruity wine.
