The Taylor Fladgate Single Harvest Port is presented in the classic frosted bottle associated with Taylor Fladgates celebrated range of Aged Tawny Ports and will be presented in a high quality wooden box.

Tasting Note

During its five decades of aging in oak casks, this wine has taken on an attractive pale mahogany color with olive amber highlights. On the nose, the wine displays delicate oaky aromas, walnuts, figs, demerara sugar and hints of caramel intertwined with spicy, cigar box notes. The palate is silky smooth, with mocha and honeyed notes on the entry. Crisp acidity carries the wine to its long and richly textured finish. Finely constituted and beautifully balanced, this rare Single Harvest Tawny Port would be an exceptional tribute to any 50th anniversary or birthday.

Food Pairing

Figs, almonds, pecorino, apple pie, Comté cheese, Cornish game hens, pecan pie or even crème brulee.

About the Grape

Tinta Amarela
Tinta Amarela makes wines with intensely perfumed aromas of blackberry and tea, bold structure, deep color and excellent depth.
Tinta Barroca
Used to make Port wines, this high yielding grape has very high sugar content, which makes wines with pronounced floral character, good structure and firm, ripe tannins.
Tinta Cão
This grape has blackberry, game and meaty aromas, and contributes longevity and exceptional elegance to the blend of Port wines.
Tinta Roriz
Tinta Roriz produces deep-colored grapes of moderate acidity which make bold wines with firm tannins, excellent complexity and distinctive resin-like fragrance.
Touriga Franca
This grape has high tannins and is very aromatic; it lends structure and balance to Port wines. It shows intense fresh red fruit, earth and flower aromas, and is very fruity on the palate.
Touriga Nacional
Touriga Nacional produces wine with finesse, body and warmth that is dark, concentrated, massively tannic and aromatic. It ages to show the complex aromas typically found in mature vintage port.
