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.
Deep ruby colour. The elegant and stylish nose combines fresh, intense blackcurrant and cherry aromas with subtle notes of liquorice and spice. On the palate the rich and concentrated black fruit flavour is supported by firm but well integrated tannins. True to the Taylor Fladgate style the wine shows great balance and finesse.
Vintage Port and LBV both present a selection of very fine full bodied red ports from a single year. The fundamental difference between the two styles lies in the way each is matured. Vintage Port is kept in wood for only twenty months or so before being transferred to the bottle where it will continue to age. Late Bottled Vintage, as the name suggests, is bottled later, remaining in wood between four and six years. During this relatively long period of wood ageing, an LBV matures and settles down – it is ready to drink when bottled, does not need to be decanted and can be served by the glass for several weeks after the cork is drawn.
