Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
This rich, mellow old tawny port owes its intense complex nose to many years of ageing in oak casks.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 1 year

"A cool glass of mellow, sweet and nutty tawny port, long aged in oak casks, will not only marry with dessert, but segue nicely into the perfect partner for posh chocolates afterwards."
Founded in 1692, Taylor's is the only original British port house to have remained entirely family owned and run throughout its history. During this time the firm has pioneered many styles of port, including Late Bottled Vintage, dry white port and the commercialisation of single quinta port. Taylor's was the first port shipper to purchase property in the Douro in 1744 and now owns three grade 'A' estates, Quinta de Vargellas, Quinta de Terra Feita and Quinta do Junco.
The exteremes of climate, aspect and soil are all important influences in the production of port. The Marao mountain range protects the Douro valley from the Atlantic influence. The result is dramatically reduced rainfall and opposing extremes of temperature in summr and winter. 90% of the region is on a gradient steeper than 1 in 3. Traditional planting is on tiers of horizontal walled terraces. Modern plantings are on earth bank terraces or up and down the slopes.
