    The 2018 Taylor’s Vintage Port comes predominantly from two vineyards: Quinta de Vargellas and Quinta de Terra Feita. It has a classy, aristocratic bouquet, a signature note apropos Taylor’s Vintage: dense black fruit with touches of melted tar, cloves and white pepper. This just builds and builds in the glass. The palate is very harmonious with fine tannins, perfect acidity and very pure with a gentle, almost caressing second half. White pepper interlaces the black fruit with a very precise finish. Pure class.

    Taylor's

    Established in 1692, Taylor’s is one of the oldest of the Port houses. To this day the family remains absolutely dedicated to the highest standards of Port production and continues to invest in all aspects of the firm’s operations and the unique environment of the Douro Valley, through the promotion of sustainable and responsible viticulture. Taylor’s Vintage Port is one of the world’s most iconic wines. Made only in the very finest years – known as ‘declared’ vintages – the Vintage Port is a blend of three iconic properties: Quinta de Vargellas, Quinta de Terra Feita and more recently, Quinta do Junco. Taylor’s is also respected as a producer of quality Tawnies and holds one of the largest reserves of rare cask aged wines from which its distinguished aged tawny Ports are drawn. The house is also known as the originator of Late Bottled Vintage, a style which the firm pioneered and of which it remains the leading producer.
