40 Year Old Tawny
Taylor´s Port Wine
1 - Bottle (0.75L)

RICH & MELLOW

40 Year Old Tawny
Taylor’s 40 Year Old Tawny is a very rare old tawny blend, produced in limited quantities. Selected red Ports produced in the eastern areas of the Douro Valley, are matured in seasoned oak casks in Taylor’s cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia. Here the cool and damp coastal climate encourages a slow and gentle ageing process producing aromas of great complexity and finesse.

The 40 years of ageing in wood have concentrated this wine almost to an essence, producing intense and complex nutty and spicy aromas and a dense and concentrated palate full of rich mellow flavour.

Tasting Notes

A sublime Port of very great age which shows the old olive-gold hue of its many years in cask. Decades of evaporation have concentrated this extraordinary wine to an exceptional density, with a powerful nose of dried fruit, honey and a touch of spice. Impressions of nutmeg, roasted coffee and an intense nuttiness converge both in the bouquet and on the palate. The wine’s rich, intense, voluptuous, almost viscous texture culminate in a finish of incredible length.

DECANTING
Ready to drink. Does not require decanting.

STORAGE
The bottle should be kept upright, protected from light and at a cool and constant temperature.

SERVING TEMPERATURE
The wine benefits from being served slightly chilled, between 12ºC to 16ºC.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS
An excellent accompaniment to many desserts. It combines well with flavours of figs, almonds and caramel. It is an excellent for a crème brulée or a plate of wild strawberries. It may also be appreciated on its own, at the end of the meal, with walnuts or dried fruit.

Alluring, with a warm date and gently mulled fig and peach core gliding through, while light alder, bitter almond and candied ginger notes add sparkle and texture along the edges. Frankly sweet through the finish but with the energy for balance. Drink now.
