Taylor’s Very Old Single Harvest Port

Portugal | 1968

£175.00 a bottle

A mature, opulent plum-pudding nose, intense and powerful. Warm base notes of raisin and toffee mingle with a rich vanilla oak, aromas of walnut and marzipan and spicy hints of black pepper. The palate is round,concentrated and full of rich nutty, butterscotch flavour. Underpinning the smooth, dense texture is a finely-integrated acidity which provides an attractive freshness and lift into the long finish.

Origin

Taylor’s extensive cask aged reserves include a collection of very rare and valuable Single Harvest Ports. Not to be confused with Vintage Ports, which age in bottle, Single Harvest Ports are wines of a single year which have been matured for five decades in seasoned oak casks in the Taylor’s lodges in Oporto. These wonderfully mellow, complex wines have been aged to full maturity and display the year of harvest on the label.
Taylor’s has decided to make a limited release, each year, of a Single Harvest Port made 50 years previously. The fourth in the series is the 1967 Single Harvest.

Producer

Founded in 1692, Taylor’s is one of the oldest of the founding Port Houses. It remains independent and family-owned, headquartered in Oporto, the historic birthplace of the Port industry. Taylor’s is renowned as one of the most innovative Port houses, having pioneered the Late Bottled Vintage style, and also holds one of the largest reserves of cask-aged wines used to create their range of tawny Ports.
