2007 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1047857

94-97 points Wine Spectator: "A classic baby Vintage Port nose of blackberry, currant and a little bit of green lemon leaf. Full-bodied and medium sweet. There's a solid core of ripe fruit and powerful tannins, with grip. The real deal." (Tatsing Highlight, May 6, 2009) The 2007 harvest was exceptional at Taylor Fladgate, and the near-flawless growing conditions comes through in this lovely vintage Port. It's purple color is so concentrated it borders on black. Already expressive on the nose, depsite its youth, its nose marries floral aromas with briar fruit and tangy black currants. On the palate, it has the tightly-knit tannins characterisitc of Taylor Fladgate and a great indication of the potential longevity of this vibrant, focused, racy Port. ETA: Early Sept 2009.

The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port.

Port

- Port is a fortified wine made by stopping the fermentation with brandy. The result is a heavy sweet wine, most often red, that is dense, rich and high in alcohol. Port is made all over the world with some great results in Australia and South Africa, but the most famous of these dessert wines come from Portugal. The great port houses (or lodges) are located along the Duoro River on the steep slate slopes high above the valley floor. There are several styles of port, including Ruby, Tawny, Vintage Character, Late Bottle Vintage, Colheita, and Single Quinta. Vintage ports are made in special years that the houses declare.
