NV Taylor Fladgate 20 Year Tawny Port, Douro, Portugal
ABOUT THIS WINE
Taylor Fladgate is one of the most highly respected producers of aged tawny Port wines. 20 Year Old Tawny Port is fully matured in seasoned oak casks each holding about 630 liters of wine. Here, over many years of aging, the Port 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 this style of port.
Taylor Fladgate blends its magnificent 20-year-old tawny Ports 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.
In the 20-Year-Old tawny, the fruit has mellowed further than in the 10 Year Old, and the spicy, nutty aromas of aging are more powerful and intense.
The most popular 20-Year-Old Aged Tawny Port in the United States of America.
