About: Taylor’s 40 Year Old Tawny is a very rare old tawny blend, produced in limited quantities. Selected red Ports produced in the eastern areas of the Douro Valley, are matured in seasoned oak casks. Taylor’s cellars here the cool and damp coastal climate encourages a slow and gentle ageing process producing aromas of great complexity and finesse. The 40 years of ageing in wood have concentrated this wine almost to an essence, producing intense and complex nutty and spicy aromas and a dense and concentrated palate full of rich mellow flavour.
Made entirely from the grapes grown on Taylors own properties, Taylors is one of the few remaining houses which still produces a 40 Year Old Aged Tawny Port; Tiny quantities of this wine are made. Decades of evaporation and ageing in wood have concentrated this wine almost to an essence, producing intense and complex nutty and spicy aromas and a dense and concentrated palate full of rich mellow flavour.
Tasting Notes: A sublime Port of very great age which shows the old olive-gold hue of its many years in cask. Decades of evaporation have concentrated this extraordinary wine to an exceptional density, with a powerful nose of dried fruit, honey and a touch of spice. Impressions of nutmeg, roasted coffee and an intense nuttiness converge both in the bouquet and on the palate. The wine’s rich, intense, voluptuous, almost viscous texture culminate in a finish of incredible length.
