Taylor’s Vargellas Vinha Velha Vintage 2009 Port
The 2009 year was characterised by a low grape production, much in part due to the very dry summer that was felt in that year. The harvest at Quinta de Vargellas began on September 12th and it was verified that the amount of fruit was greatly reduced, leading to a production of concentrated wines, with high sugar levels. Taylor's Vargellas Vinha Velha Vintage 2009 is a deep black purple colour Port wine with sublime aromas of ripe fruit like plums, black cherries, cassis and slight notes of rosewood and clove.
The aroma of violets reflects the complexity of aromas present in this Vintage. On the palate reveals dense tannins and with a thick texture and fruity flavours. The aftertaste is long, energetic and persistent. Taylor’s Vargellas Vinha Velha Vintage 2009 should be open 2 hours before being served and it is also recommended to decant it. The bottle should be stored horizontally in a dry, cool and dark place in order to mantain intact the wine qualities. A Port indicated to be served after meals with cream cheeses or with meat dishes.
