Taylor Fladgate Tawny Port 2020 10 year old
This style of Port is fully matured in seasoned oak casks each holding about 630 liters of wine. Here, over many years of aging, the wine gradually takes on its characteristic amber 'tawny' color, slowly developing the complex mellow flavors and the smooth luscious palate which are the hallmarks of Tawny Port. Taylor Fladgate blends its magnificent 10 year old tawny from its extensive reserves of old cask aged Ports matured in the firm's cool and tranquil cellars (known as 'lodges') in Oporto on Portugal's Atlantic coast. Taylor Fladgate 10 Year Old Tawny is a superb example of the aged tawny style. Mellow and elegant, combining delicate wood notes with rich aromas of mature fruit, it is bottled for immediate drinking. Deep brick color with amber rim. Rich and elegant nose combining aromas of ripe berry fruit with a delicate nuttiness and subtle mellow notes of chocolate, butterscotch and fine oak wood. Smooth and silky on the palate and full of ripe figgy, jammy flavors which persist on the long finish.
