Wine from selected batches of the best years that aged an average of 30 years in wooden casks.
Port with velvety and elegant style acquired by Taylor’s characteristic natural ageing conditions.
Taylor’s is one of the few remaining houses to produce 30 Years Old Tawny wine.
Selected red Port wines are produced in the eastern part of the Douro region, including wines from Taylor’s own farms, and are aged in seasoned oak casks in Taylor’s cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. In the town of Gaia, the cool and damp coastal climate allows a smooth and slow ageing process, producing aromas of great complexity and finesse.
Only every two or three years is a reserve Port wine laid aside with sufficient structure, fruit and strength to be able to age for a long time.
Wines that constitute the reserve are aged in oak casks.
Those that have reached their peak after 30 years are then blended to achieve balance and finesse, as well as to ensure quality and style consistency .
Tawny 30 Years Old Port is one of those wines.
Wines are aged in oak casks in Taylor’s cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia.
Here, the cool, damp coastal climate allows a smooth and slow aging process, producing aromas of great complexity and sensitivity.
Croft 2009 Vintage Port
This Vintage Port was created in 2009, which will be remembered as a year of low yields, due, in part, to the small amount of fruit and the effects of a very dry ripening season.
The ripening season started with relatively cold weather that remained so until July.
However, August was intensely hot.
An early harvest granted wines a good acid balance and avoided over-ripening.
Fonseca Quinta do Panascal 1998 Vintage Port has a fruity flavour and is a very fragrant wine.
Medium-bodied wine, very well structured and that is ready to be savoured.
Book a few bottles in your wine cellar and enjoy its evolution.
Bottled in 2001
Croft 2003 Vintage Port
This Port is fragrant and possesses wild black fruit aroma and an exotic touch.
The aroma burst from the glass: blackberry, blueberry, violets, cassis and morning dew, all with a fantastic setting.
It is full-bodied, magnificent and majestic on the mouth, with a better definition and approach than ancient Port wine. Blackberry and blueberry flavours provide a mineral sense that crosses at the finish, with an imperceptible alcohol.
This is a good choice for a Vintage Port and to savour pleasurably on several occasions.Ageing process:
Aged for 24 months in oak casks and then in bottles for several years.
Dow’s Quinta Sra. Da Ribeira Vintage 2012 is a wine with violet aromas that come from Touriga Franca vineyards, having reached the perfect ripeness in the year of its production. In this wine is still possible to find complex and seductive aromas of blackberry and currant, making it a fragrant and fruity wine. All these flavours and aromas in a 4,5Lt (6 bottles) Edition that you won't want want to miss.
