Taylor Fladgate Tawny Port 20 Years Port & Madeira NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Taylor’s 20 Year Old Tawny is a magnificent, finely constituted old tawny blend, produced in limited quantities. Selected red ports produced in the eastern areas of the Douro Valley, including Taylor’s own estates, are matured in oak casks in Taylor’s cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. Here the cool and damp coastal climate encourages a gentle ageing process producing aromas of great complexity and finesse. In the 20 Year Old tawny, the fruit has mellowed further than in the 10 Year Old, and the spicy, nutty aromas of ageing are more powerful and intense.

Transparent red in the glass tinged with a slight brown color. Full-bodied. Just a bit of the oxidized flavors come forward along with nutty notes and a nice brown sugar or caramel flavor as well. Pretty good following dinner.

A fruity old tawny; plum and almond character; hints of honey and caramel. Medium-bodied; medium finish. Fresh style. Drink now. -Wine Spectator

A fine balance between the rich, raisiny fruit and the nutty, honeyed finish.

Gute Balance zwischen der schweren Rosinenfrucht und dem nussig, nach Honig schmeckenden Ende.

Buttery and rich, with concentrated dried red fruit flavors and plenty of glazed ginger and apricot notes. The finish is peppery, with hints of iodine.

Although this famous name has produced quite a light 20-year-old, that lightness is more than made up for by the beautiful, smooth flavors, the taste of lemon jelly, dried apricots and peaches, and fine, fresh acidity.

Durch die 20jährige Reife erlangt der Portwein eine Ausgewogenheit, Feinheit und eine besondere Milde, die den Sinneseindruck vom Bouquet bis ins Finale prägen. Auch die Farbe bleibt von dieser Entwicklung nicht unbeeinflusst: helle, bernsteinfarbige Töne mit orangen Reflexen. Im Gaumen präsentiert sich eine geschliffene Struktur mit einem runden, verarbeiteten Körper. Der klassische Porto vom traditionsreichen Weingut Taylor’s Port, dessen Wurzeln bis ins ausgehende 17. Jahrhundert gehen, überzeugt auch im Abgang durch seine Gradlinigkeit und Klarheit im Ausdruck.

Tasting Notes:

Intense amber tawny colour. Opulent and voluptuous nose of complex spicy, jammy and nutty aromas, hints of orange flower and a fine oakiness coming from the long period of aging in cask. The palate is full of very rich and concentrated flavour and has a long mellow finish.
