About This Wine


    Most perfect wine and food pairings are closely linked. Chilled native oysters and a crisp, cool Muscadet and a hearty meat ragu with a full bodied Barolo. Yet, every rule has its exceptions, and these often prove to be the most interesting of pairings. Consider Port Wine and cheese. The flavour profiles of both salty cheese and sweet Port, whilst strong enough to stand up to each other, fall on opposite ends of the taste spectrum, acting as complements, a little like a good marriage! Some good blue, buttery, mellow and slighty piquant cheeses to consider would be: Cashel Blue, Roquefort, Gorgonzola and Saint Agur Blue.

    Taylor’s Vintage Ports are renowned for their massive structure and aromatic power, tempered by a characteristic understatement and restraint. The ultimate collector’s Port wines, Vintage Ports will age for decades in the cellar, slowly developing the elegance and harmony which are the hallmarks of a mature Taylor’s Vintage Port.

    After each harvest, the tasting panel selects the finest Port wines from the three properties and these are then left to age for two winters in oak vats.

    In their second Spring, they are tasted again. If they are judged to be of exceptional quality, the Port wines of the three estates are blended together, Vargellas bringing structure, elegance and complexity to the wine and Terra Feita and Junco body, depth and powerful, concentrated fruit.

    At this stage it must be decided whether a Vintage Port is to be ‘declared’. For a declaration to be made, the Vintage Port blend must be of outstanding quality: austere in its youth, with tremendous depth of flavour and massive structure, capable of evolving over years, or decades into that quintessence of great Port, a mature Taylor’s Vintage.

    Historically Taylor’s has only declared about three Vintage years per decade


    100 POINTS! James Suckling, Jan 1997

    "In a word, superb. My favourite Taylor has always been the 1948, which is still stupendous to drink today. However, I had never given a Taylor 100 points until I tasted the 1994."
