1966 is a year emblazoned upon the memory of every Englishman. It turns out it was not only a good year for football, but a great year for Port!
Taylor’s, who have been making Port wine since 1692, hold one of the largest reserves of extremely old Port in the industry. It is this deep stock of wines that allows the company to produce incredibly rare bottlings such as this Singe Harvest limited edition.
This is the third in a series that bottles Ports from a vintage 50 years previously, beginning with 1964. Adrian Bridge, Taylor’s Managing Director, said of the series: “Taylor’s Single Harvest Ports offer a unique opportunity to celebrate with an extraordinary 50 year old wine in perfect condition.”
After 50 years of aging in oak casks, Taylor’s have bottled a wine of stunning elegance and opulence. The Port offers notes of dark brown sugar, rich fudgy toffee, caramelised dried fruits, figs, mocha, dark chocolate, toasted almonds and walnuts, intense spice, pears and tropical fruits.
Wine Spectator awarded this bottling a phenomenal 96 points out of 100.
