Taylor's Porto Vintage Port Wine 2017 (case of 6 bottles) Description
Deep purple color with a thin magenta edge. Intense aromas of pure berries and fresh notes of green apple, plum and raspberry. Around the core of live fruit is a heady aura of esteva and herbs. More in-depth, exotic notes of cedar and jasmine give an extra dimension of complexity. The wine has an attractive elegance and muscularity, with vigorous and linear tannins that merge perfectly on the palate and that sustain the wine with great firmness. Very vigorous for its sassy acidity, it presents the intense flavors of berries in a very long end.
Vinification: Taylor's Vintage Port is one of the world's finest iconic wines. Made only in the best years - known as 'declared' vintages -, Vintage Ports are blended with the best products from the company's own properties, Quinta de Vargellas, Quinta de Terra Feita and, more recently, Quinta do Junco. After each harvest, the tasting panel selects the best Ports from the three properties and then ages them for two winters in oak vats. In the second spring, they are tasted again. If they are judged to be of exceptional quality, Port wines from the three estates are blended, Vargellas bringing structure, elegance and complexity to the wine and Terra Feita and Junco body, depth and powerful, concentrated fruit. At this stage it has to be decided if a Vintage Port should be 'declared'. For a declaration to be made, the Vintage Port blend must be of excellent quality: austere in its youth, with tremendous depth of flavour and massive structure, capable of evolving over years or decades into the quintessence of a great Port, a mature Taylor's Vintage . Historically, Taylor's declared only about three Vintage years per decade. Taylor's Vintage Ports are known for their massive structure and aromatic power, tempered by characteristic understatement and restraint. The best Port wines for collectors, Vintage Ports age for decades in the cellar, slowly developing the elegance and harmony that are the hallmarks of mature Taylor Vintage Port.
Taylor's is the most illustrious Port house and drinking its wines is the most sublime of experiences. Established over three centuries ago, in 1692, Taylor's is one of the oldest Port houses, dedicated exclusively to the production of Port and particularly to its finest styles.Above all, Taylor's is an independent company in which some members of the family play leading roles in all areas of activity. The long and uninterrupted family tradition of the company has allowed it to provide continuity and clarity of mission, both essential attributes of any great Port house. It has also enabled the skills and knowledge necessary to produce the finest Ports to be honed, these being constantly refined in the light of experience that is passed down from generation to generation.Taylor's is also respected as a producer of wood-aged Ports and holds one of the largest stocks of rare cask-aged wines, from which the distinctive aged Tawny Ports stand out. The house is also known as the creator of LBV (Late Bottled Vintage), a style in which the company was a pioneer and of which it remains the leading producer. Successive generations, with their experience, have strived to refine their knowledge and capacity to produce ever-better Port wines. Based in Porto and in the Douro region, the company is involved in all stages of producing its Port wines, from planting the vine and growing the grapes to making, ageing and bottling the wine blends. The family's commitment to the future of Port is demonstrated in its dedication to achieving the highest standards in Port wine production, its sustained investment in all areas of the company's operations and, finally, its determination to preserve the unique environment of the Douro region through the promotion of sustainable and responsible viticulture.
