Wine of Portugal

Gold International Wine Challenge 2013 quality assured

Red Portugal Wine

Taylor's Ports represent a three hundred year old tradition that began with the foundation of Taylor Fladgate & Yeatman in 1692. Three centuries of independent family ownership and experience ensure that Taylor's Ports continue to be made to the highest standards. Produced from rich fruity wines from single harvest, Late Bottled Vintage was developed as an alternative to Vintage Port for more informal occasions. Its longer wood ageing means that it is ready to drink when bottled, needs no decanting and will remain in good condition for several weeks after the bottle is first opened.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red colour, black morello cherry on the nose, great vibrancy and wonderful freshness of fruit. On the palate, cassis, plums and blackberry combine harmoniously with the well-integrated and tightly knit tannins. Long elegant finish.

Vinification Details

Late Bottled Vintage, as the name suggests, is bottled later than a vintage Port, remaining in wood between four and six years. During this relatively long period of wood ageing, an LBV matures and settles down - it is ready to drink when bottled, does not need to be decanted and can be served by the glass for several weeks after the cork is drawn.

History

Taylor's Ports represent a three hundred year old tradition that began with the foundation of Taylor Fladgate & Yeatman in 1692. Three centuries of independant family ownership and experience in producing the finest Ports of all styles ensure that Taylor's Ports continue to be made to the highest standards, combining the best of tradition and innovation.

Regional Information

Taylor’s is the proud owner of extensive grade A vineyard sites in the Douro in Portugal. This unique terroir separated from the sea by the Marão mountains and protected from the rainy winds of the Atlantic, has a climate of baking, dry summers and severe winters. It is a land of austere beauty. Taylor’s were pioneers of the Late Bottled Vintage style, developed to satisfy the demand for a high quality ready-to-drink alternative to vintage port for everyday consumption.
