Taylor Fladgate Veery Old Single Harvest Porto 1967
Taylor Fladgate holds one of the most extensive reserves of very old cask aged Port of any producer. They include a collection of rare Single Harvest Ports. These are Ports from a single year which age to full maturity in seasoned oak casks and display the year of harvest on the label. Taylor Fladgate has decided to make a limited release, each year, of a Single Harvest Port made 50 years previously. The 1966 Single Harvest is the third in the series. 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.
Delicate tawny brown color with a broad amber rim displaying olive highlights. A complex symphony of aromas on the nose, with notes of apricot, sawn wood and tobacco, scents of orange flower and honeysuckle, all on a rich mellow base of toffee, marzipan and almond. Dense, concentrated, velvety palate lifted by a crisp acidity, with a confit of apricot, guave and raisin, flavors of butterscotch and a hint of caramelized orange. A wonderfully opulent and complex wine with a lovely youthful freshness.
