Touriga FrancaTouriga Nacional
Taylor Fladgate was established in 1692 and to this day, the name is synonymous with fine Port. It is an independent company where family members are still active in the business. The firm is dedicated to quality Port production and oversees all of the steps involved in crafting this fine fortified wine; from vineyard to winery, then ageing, blending and bottling. Taylor Fladgate is a proponent of sustainable and responsible viticulture in the Douro Valley.
Pale brick colour with broad amber rim. Mellow nose of succulent ripe berry fruit with aromas of butterscotch, figs and prunes interwoven with attractive nutty and spicy aromas. Smooth and round on the palate, full of rich strawberry jam flavours.
Taylor Fladgate’s Fine Tawny is drawn from wines selected for their smoothness and mellow character. These are aged for up to three years in oak casks in Taylor Fladgate’s cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. The individual wines are then blended together a few months before bottling for balance and completeness.
Taylor Fladgate’s Fine Tawny Port is particularly popular in Continental Europe where it is drunk predominantly as an aperitif. For those preferring a lighter style, this versatile port can also be enjoyed after meals.
