Taylor Fladgate Single Harvest Tawny 1863

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 1863 color is that of a deep mahogany core with a narrow amber-olive rim. On the nose, a succession of subtle spicy aromas opens up against a dense backdrop of treacle and molasses. Notes of sawn oak and vanilla give way to a spicy surge of nutmeg, black pepper and ginger. Gradually the rich, sumptuous aromas of age emerge: walnut, marzipan, butterscotch and mocha followed by rich figgy plum pudding notes. On the palate, the wine is in perfect balance, with sweetness and acidity in perfect harmony and beautifully integrated spirit. On the mid-palate the wine releases a burst of opulent mellow flavor which is lifted by a crisp acidity as it flows into the endless finish. This is a wine of extraordinary depth and background which continues to astonish with multiple layers and dimensions of aroma." Importer
