Perfect for a Landmark 50th Birthday gift or Anniversary, we are proud to offer a limited selection of 6x75cl single bottle cases of the 1969 Taylor’s Single Harvest Port.
Taylor’s holds one of the most extensive reserves of very old cask Port of any producer. They include a collection of rare Single Harvest Ports. These are ports from a single year which age to fill maturity and seasoned oak casks and display the year of harvest on the label. Taylor’s has decided to make a limited release, each year, of a Single Harvest Port made 50 years previously.
The sixth in the series is the 1969 Single Harvest.
Producer Tasting Notes
The wine benefits from being served slightly chilled between 12℃ and 16℃.
Deep mahogany colour with discreet olive highlights on the rim.
Very fine, elegant nose, with an opulent core of wild honey, treacle and butterscotch infused with a spicy redolence of black pepper and cinnamon. Cedary cigar box aromas, savoury scents of wild herbs and a discreet aura of fresh mint add a further layer of complexity.
The perfectly calibrated palate is lifted by a fresh acidity and delivers a wealth of rich mellow flavour, molasses, dried figs, sultanas and apricot confit.
The finish is clean and bright, with ripe pear and mint and very discreet citrus notes.
Price: 6x75cl £750.00 + vat + shipping. geographic selling restrictions apply.
