Taylor Fladgate 325th Anniversary Port


Taylor Fladgate 325th Anniversary Port...$34.99
To mark the 325th Anniversary of the foundation of the house we have decided to release Taylor’s 325th Anniversary Limited Edition Port.
This unique blend has been made from the extensive reserves of tawny stocks stored in the firm’s lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia. Wines that were destined for ageing as 10, 20, 30 and 40 Year Old Tawny lots have been carefully selected by Taylor’s Head winemaker, David Guimaraens and blended to form this opulent and seductive aged tawny.
The bottle is based on a unique late 17th Century sealed bottle, first made at about the same time as the foundation of Taylor’s in 1692. It is the earliest example of an intact bottle bearing the merchant’s mark, in this case the ‘4XX’ Symbol still used as the Taylor’s trademark to this day.
This opulent and seductive aged tawny is a fitting tribute to Taylor’s 325th anniversary and to the firm’s expertise in ageing and blending the finest cask aged ports.
