Produced only in exceptional vintages worthy of a vintage Porto declaration, Taylor Fladgate Classic Vintage Porto comes from the finest estate vineyards: Quinta de Vargellas, celebrated as one of the top 100 vineyards in the world, Quinta de Terra Feita and Quinta de Junco. All grapes undergo the traditional foot treading method, ensuring their fullest expression. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. Following two years in wood, the wines are bottled and will continue maturing for decades.
Taylor Fladgate vintage Portos are renowned for their masculine, robust style. This wine shows powerful black fruit aromas and flavors and a firm tannic structure that will allow it to develop for decades in the bottle.
Most often served after a meal, alone or with cheese, nuts or dried fruits.
