Taylor’s 1969 Tawny Port

Taylor’s has announced the release of the 1969 Single Harvest 50-year-old tawny Port, the latest in its range of limited-edition Ports. The 1969 is the sixth release so far in the Single Harvest series. The 1969 vintage had one of the highest winter rainfalls on record, followed by a hot July and August but the cool start to the summer meant harvesting did not start until early October.

Aged for 50 years in oak casks at Taylor’s lodge in Gaia, the wine is described as having a “deep mahogany” colour, “wild honey” and “cigar box aromas” on the nose, with “molasses, dried figs, sultanas and apricot confit” on the palate.

RRP: £200.
