A collection of rare, single harvest Ports are shortly to be released by Taylor’s from United Wine Merchants
The first in the series will be a rich, mellow and spicy 1964 Single Harvest Port which will be offered to the Northern Ireland market from January 2014 to coincide with landmark 50th birthdays and anniversaries.
Distributed in Northern Ireland by United Wine Merchants, it will be presented in the classic Taylor’s frosted bottle, and packaged in a high quality wooden box, with a recommended retail price of £175 a bottle. A limited amount of this wine will be available so we strongly suggest placing early orders.
Pale mahogany in colour, with olive amber highlights, this complex, spicy and nutty 50 year old wood aged Port has a warm mellow background of butterscotch and molasses on the nose, with a smooth velvety palate. Despite its great age, it has crisp acidity which gives it attractive freshness. It has an immensely long finish with rich, spicy, black pepper flavours which linger on the palate.
“Taylor’s holds one of the most comprehensive and extensive reserves of very old, cask aged Ports of any producer” says Chris Forbes from Taylor’s Port.
“They include a collection of rare Single Harvest wines which we plan to release every year to coincide with 50th landmark celebrations. There are few wines in the world which can match the longevity and freshness of these extraordinary Ports and the ones in our collection have survived in perfect condition.”
The 1964 Taylor’s Single Harvest Port will be followed in 2015 by the equally rare and exceptional 1965. Further releases of 50 year old Single Harvest Ports will follow.
