Taylor’s releases 1970 Single Harvest Port
Taylor’s Single Harvest 1970, the seventh in the series of limited edition 50 year old Port Wines, is a wonderful wine and an exquisite expression of the art of wood ageing, which Taylor’s has refined over the centuries.
These extraordinary wines age gracefully in the cool cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia where the conditions are perfect to allow the wines to develop the rich and sublime flavours characteristic of a very old Port Wine. The superb elegance, sublime flavour and extremely long finish make them an unmissable accompaniment at any memorable fiftieth celebration.
Taylor’s holds one of the most extensive reserves of very old cask aged Port of any producer. They include a collection of rare Single Harvest Ports. These are Ports from a single year which age to full maturity in 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 seventh in the series is the 1970 Single Harvest.
Pale mahogany core surrounded by a broad pale gold rim with subtle olive highlights. On first impression, the wine is lifted and ethereal but soon begins to unfurl layer after layer of multi-dimensional aroma. First to emerge are notes of sawn wood and cigar leaf, against a background of cedar, balsam and citrus. These are followed by a warmer, mellow redolence of marzipan, walnut and coffee, notes of sultana and plum and spicy hints of black pepper and cardamom. Finally, the nose opens up a discreet savoury dimension, with hints of toast and wild herbs. On the palate, the wine has a smooth, velvety texture. Rich, dense and sumptuous, it coats the tongue with opulent mellow flavour, coffee and butterscotch with hints of walnut and candied orange peel, but with a remarkable freshness from the current of lively acidity which runs through the palate into the extraordinary long finish. A wonderfully elegant, finely constituted and beautifully matured port delivering a surge of rich flavour with every sip.
This wine is ready to drink and does not require decanting.
The bottle should be kept upright, protected from direct sun light and at a cool and constant temperature.
The wine benefits from being served slightly chilled, between 12ºC to 16ºC.
Combines well with flavours of figs, almonds and caramel. It is an excellent complement for a crème brûlée or a plate of wild strawberries. It may also be appreciated on its own, at the end of the meal, with walnuts or dried fruit.
