Tasting Notes

An unseasonably hot spring resulted in early budding and by mid April the vines were showing good growth. Conditions for flowering in May were near perfect. A cool early summer was followed by very high temperatures in August. Picking started at Quinta de Vargellas on 13th September, a week later than most of the region. Conditions were perfect and the highest sugar readings in years were recorded. Due to the cool temperatures the fermentation periods were longer than usual ensuring a great extraction of fruit, flavour and colour. - Winery Note

Taylor's Vintage Port is one of the world's great iconic wines. Made only in the very finest years ‚– known as 'declared' vintages ‚– Vintage Ports are blended from the best produce of the firm's own estates of Quinta de Vargellas, Quinta de Terra Feita and more recently, Quinta do Junco.

After each harvest, the tasting panel selects the finest Port wines from the three properties and these are then left to age for two winters in oak vats.

In their second Spring, they are tasted again. If they are judged to be of exceptional quality, the Port wines of the three estates are blended together, Vargellas bringing structure, elegance and complexity to the wine and Terra Feita and Junco body, depth and powerful, concentrated fruit.

At this stage it must be decided whether a Vintage Port is to be 'declared'. For a declaration to be made, the Vintage Port blend must be of outstanding quality: austere in its youth, with tremendous depth of flavour and massive structure, capable of evolving over years, or decades into that quintessence of great Port, a mature Taylor's Vintage.

Historically Taylor's has only declared about three Vintage years per decade.

Taylor's Vintage Ports are renowned for their massive structure and aromatic power, tempered by a characteristic understatement and restraint. The ultimate collector's Port wines, Vintage Ports will age for decades in the cellar, slowly developing the elegance and harmony which are the hallmarks of a mature Taylor's Vintage Port.
