Taylors Vintage Port is Taylor’s finest and rarest wine, the very pinnacle of port. Only in a year when everything is perfect does Taylor’s declare a vintage. With the companys reputation at stake, declaring is not taken lightly, since it invites a knowledgeable and worldwide audience to judge whether perfection has indeed been achieved. The ultimate collectors wines, Taylor’s Vintage Ports will last for fifty years or more. They are renowned for their massive structure, concentration of flavor and distinctive masculine style. Bottled after two years in wood, they continue to mature for decades in the cellar, slowly attaining the sublime elegance and power which are the hallmarks of the Taylor’s style. Taylors three famous properties Vargellas, Terra Feita and Junco occupy distinct geographic locations. Each contributes its own unique character and dimension to the subtle harmony of the blend. In keeping with house tradition, the decision to declare the 2007 vintage was announced on St Georges Day, 23rd April, two years after the harvest. Commenting on the declaration, Taylors Managing Director Adrian Bridge noted: The 2007 wines have been impressive from the start, displaying crisp, vibrant fruit and a wonderful balance. In keeping with the house style, the Taylors 2007 Vintage Port shows great elegance, poise and a fine scented quality contributed by the wines of Quinta de Vargellas on which the blend is based.
