1968 Taylor Fladgate Single Harvest

Taylor Fladgate 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 Fladgate has decided to make a limited release, each year, of a Single Harvest Port made 50 years previously. The fifth in the series is the 1968 Single Harvest.

1969 Taylor Fladgate Very Old Single Harvest Port

Deep mahogany colour with discreet olive highlights on the rim. Very fine, elegant nose, with an opulent core of wild honey, treacle and butterscotch infused with a spicy redolence of black pepper and cinnamon. Cedary cigar box aromas, savoury scents of wild herbs and a discreet aura of fresh mint add a further layer of complexity. The perfectly calibrated palate is lifted by a fresh acidity and delivers a wealth of rich mellow flavour, molasses, dried figs, sultanas and apricot confit. The finish is clean and bright, with ripe pear and mint and very discreet zesty citrus notes.

1994 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port

In a word, superb. It’s full-bodied, moderately sweet and incredibly tannic, but there’s amazing finesse and refinement to the texture, not to mention fabulous, concentrated aromas of raspberries, violets and other flowers. Perhaps the greatest Taylor ever, it’s better than either the ’92 or the ’70, though it’s very like the ’70 in structure. WS

2016 Taylor Fladgate Vintage Port

OMG. This is really the most amazing young Taylor Fladgate I have ever tasted. Full-bodied and lightly sweet with super power and intensity. So racy and focused. Yet this has such muscle and intensity. Needs at least eight years to show you everything it has to offer. Drink in 2025.

Croft 430th Anniversary Ltd Ed Ruby Port

Deep ruby black colour with a narrow purple rim. The nose opens with a fine crisp fruitiness, black cherry, blackberry and cassis, and aromas of fresh plum. Delicate floral notes of rose petal and violet emerge to provide elegance and complexity. The wine has the typical Croft roundness and smoothness offset by a fresh acidity and firm but well integrated tannins. The palate is crammed with intense berry fruit and finishes with luscious flavours of strawberry and cherry. A superb reserve Port, displaying all the fine fruit character which is a hallmark of the Croft style.

Croft Quinta Da Roeda Vintage 2015

Intense purple-black centre surrounded by a vivid magenta rim. A typical Quinta da Roêda Vintage Port nose made up of a rich plump dark berry compote infused with exotic notes of ripe tropical fruit and the subtle pungency of wild herbs

Fonseca Guimaraens Vintage Port 2015

Opaque purple color, almost black, with a very narrow purple aureole. Classic nose, with intense aroma, almost intoxicating, of wild fruits. Fruity is powerful but at the same time very fine and complex. The dense aromas of blackberry and cassis are the base notes for the mentholated and balsamic fragrances of aromatic herbs and the resinous character of esteva. Discreet notes of exotic wood, licorice and black pepper add an additional dimension of complexity. The palate is built around a dense core of black fruits and the tannins, with their dense and closed weave, provide structure and volume at the same time. The aromas of raspberry and plum add freshness and lightness to the long and lush finish. The vintage of 2015, the year of Fonseca’s bicentenary, produced an exceptional, expressive and accessible Vintage Guimaraens with the vigor necessary to ensure a long life in the wine cellar.

 

Kopke 10 Year Old White

Cool, light-amber color, this unique white “tawny” port derives from the traditional white grapes of the Porto e Douro region. Starting with aromas of a Pear Clafouti and burnt sugar, this elegant port delivers luscious flavors of Japanese pear-apple, with accents of hazelnut, nutmeg and orange zest. The lingering grapefruit finish provides the perfect balance for the sweetness

Kopke Colheita 1965
