Today’s Deal ~ Taylor Fladgate “325 Anniversary” -Limited Edition- Reserve Tawny Port NV (Portugal)
Only 20 Bottles Available!!!
“To mark Taylor’s 325th anniversary, we have joined forces with single-handed yachtsman and sea ambassador, Ricardo Diniz, to re-enact Taylor’s first shipment of Port.
In 1692, an important chapter in the history of Port began. Job Bearsley, an English merchant, travelled to Portugal to venture into the wine business, founding the company we now know as Taylor’s. Today, it is one of the oldest and most renowned Port producers, and its Ports are considered amongst the finest in the world.
Recreating the history of that first Taylor’s shipment of Port to London, a cask of Port has been shipped from the quayside in front of Taylor’s Port cellars, in Vila Nova de Gaia, carrying a limited edition of a specially blended Port to celebrate the anniversary. The boat unloaded its important cargo on the banks of the River Thames. Then as today, England still is the main market for Port’s special categories.”

“This is a superb blend of aged tawny Ports, blended to celebrate the company’s 325th anniversary. Filled with rich fruit, it has great depth and spicy richness although it is also impressively fresh. Dried fruits and red plums are lifted with a hint of smoky wood and good acidity. Like any tawny Port, it is ready to drink.”

“A compelling tawny showing cooked fruits, Indian spice and hints of toffee as well as dried flowers. Full body, layered and dynamic on the palate with a sweet and dried fruit aftertaste. Some figs as well. Lightly tannic. Makes you want to curl up next to a fire. Drink now.”
