Taylor's Single Harvest Ports

 Following their purchase of Wise and Krohn, Taylor's have a huge range of old, cask aged Ports.  Now comes the release of a series of Single Harvest Ports (Colheitas in all but name) of which the 1964 is the first to be offered, just in time for next year's 50th birthdays. 

Taylor's Single Harvest 1964 ****/*****

Amber-tawny in colour with an olive green rim; lovely, clear, slightly lifted caramelised aromas with a touch of butterscotch; soft and suave with rich, spicy flavours, full and round, quite sweet in style which just stops short of cloying on the finish. Fresh, delicate length. Beuatiful balance and a remarkable wine at 50 years old.  2,000 bottles to be released at £150 a bottle.  18.5
