Taylors - 40 Year Old TawnyIntense and Complex
Available 18th Jun 2018
An incredible example of an old Tawny port. A rarity, as few houses will make a 40 year old tawny. This wine is olive gold in colour with rich caramel, butterscotch, hazelnut flavours. The concentration in this port also produces a wine with amazing length, which lingers beautifully in the palate.
Taylor's 40 Year Old Tawny is a very rare old tawny blend, produced in limited quantities.
Selected red ports produced in the eastern areas of the Douro Valley, including Taylor's own estates, are matured in seasoned oak casks in Taylor's cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia.
Here the cool and damp coastal climate encourages a slow and gentle ageing process producing aromas of great complexity and finesse.
The 40 years of 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.
The 40 Year Old tawny is bottled when ready to drink and does not require any further ageing in bottle.
