Taylor's Single Harvest Port 1967More vintages: 1966Taylor's is one of the oldest Port producers, founded over three centuries ago in 1692, a family owned independent producer that became famous for its Late Bottled Vintage Port. Produced on the family's own properties, the famous estate of Quinta de Vargellas and the ancient vineyard of Terra Feita. Single Harvest Port is blended from a single year and has been aged a long time in oak casks. After many years of wood ageing, when finally ready, the fully mature wines are ready to drink when bottled. Single Harvest Ports are ready for immediate drinking and do not need to be decanted.
This 1967 is the fourth limited edition release in a row of Taylor's as a 50th year anniversary of the wine. Taylor's holds one of the most extensive reserves of very old cask aged Port of any producer. They include a collection of rare Single Harvest Ports. These are Ports from a single year which age to full maturity in seasoned oak casks and display the harvest on the label.
This exceptional 1967 vintage is the perfect follow-up to their outstanding 1966. A broad amber colour, on the nose a complex variety of pistachio and toasted sesame. On the palate, hints of menthol and liquorice root notes with abundance of nuttiness. With a long remarkable finish mixed with more spice and walnuts.
The perfect 50th Birthday present. Presented in a high quality wooden box.

“This draws you in, with aromas of warm halva and toasted pistachio giving way to a wide range of buckwheat, toasted sesame, walnut husk, menthol and licorice root notes that refuse to break down in the mouth. Exhibits remarkable length, with ample viscosity matched by steely tension, putting this in rarefied air.”
“This 1967 is part of Taylor Fladgate’s regular releases of aged Colheita. It is showing a perfect moment in which the fruit finally passes into old gold maturity. The wine still has hints of sultanas, but now it’s the fine wood and spice character that is equally important.”
Taylor's is one of the oldest of the founding Port houses. The history of the firm is in many ways the history of the Port trade itself.
Since its foundation in 1692, Taylor has been dedicated to making the finest Port. The house remains entirely focused on Port production and specialised in its premium styles. Unlike most other producers, it does not market any other wine.
Taylor is committed to remaining independently owned. This guarantees the continuity of purpose required to make wines of quality and character. It also preserves a priceless inheritance of experience and skill passed down through the generations over more than three centuries. Taylor's independence also helps to protect its future as a producer of the finest Ports, allowing it to make decisions and investments which are in the best long term interests of the firm and of future generations.
The family character of the company also helps to nurture the personal relationships which lie at the heart of the fine wine business, such as the firm's long established partnerships with its grape suppliers and with its customers around the world. Most importantly it helps to strengthen the firm's bond with those who appreciate and enjoy fine wines and whose loyalty is the firms' most important asset.
As an independent company whose success is inseparable from that of the Douro Valley, Taylor remains committed to protecting this beautiful region by practising viticulture which is economically and environmentally sustainable. The future of the Douro Valley and its unique environment is also the future of Port, one of the world's great classic wines and an irreplaceable part of human heritage.
