Tawny Port

Taylor's is one of the few remaining houses to produce a 30 Year Old aged tawny Port. 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.

Only every two or three years is a reserve of Port with sufficient structure, fruit and power to age laid aside to age in oak casks. Those that have reached their peak after thirty years are then blended together for balance and finesse, and to ensure consistency of quality and style. The 30 year old tawny is one such wine.

Deep, old gold colour with hints of dried fruit and honey offsetting the rich nutty aromas.

Lush, silky richness with an elegant, slightly austere quality which is quite distinctive.

Subtle dried fruit flavours underly, exotic layers of caramel and nuts culminating in an endless finish.
