Taylor's Single Harvest Tawny Port 1969

DE PRODUCENT

Taylor’s werd opgericht in 1692 en behoort tot de oudste porthuizen in de Dourovallei. Een onafhankelijk familiebedrijf, dat zich exclusief toelegt op de productie van port en wereldwijd beschouwd wordt als de benchmark voor vintage ports. Afkomstig van de steile Quintas Vargellas, Terra Feita en Junco, onderscheiden deze jaargangports zich zowel door hun elegantie en balans als door hun kracht en lange levensduur. Taylor’s beschikt ook over grote reserves houtgerijpte port, waaruit prachtige oude tawny’s gecreëerd worden, waaronder de legendarische Single Vintage Tawny uit 1863 of de Kingsman Edition. Last but not least was Taylor’s de bedenker van de immer succesvolle Late Bottled Vintage en is het van die portstijl tot op de dag van vandaag de belangrijkste producent.

SINGLE HARVEST
1969 Single Harvest
Taylor’s 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’s has decided to make a limited release, each year, of a Single Harvest Port made 50 years previously. The sixth in the series is the 1969 Single Harvest.

These extraordinary Port wines have aged in oak casks in the cool, dark and quiet environment of Taylor’s lodges in Oporto. The wine has matured, slowly and evenly, gradually developing the sublime, rich and sumptuous aromas characteristic of a very old Port wine. Half a century of ageing has given this Single Harvest 1969 its seductive complex aromas and intense mellow flavour.
