Description & Technical Information
-
This 1966 is the third consecutive Limited Edition release of Taylor's as a 50th year anniversary of the wine. Taylor's hold one of the most extensive reserves of very old cask-aged port of any producer. These reserves include a unique collection of rare Single Harvest Ports. These ports are produced from a single year and age to full maturity in seasoned oak casks, displaying the vintage on the label. Single Harvest Ports are ready for immediate drinking and do not need to be decanted.

Weather: An exceptionally wet winter prepared the vines for a hot, dry summer. In August temperatures of 45C were recorded twice at Pinhao in the heart of the Cima Corgo but with so much ground water, the grapes did not dry up or raisinise. Rain finally arrived during the harvest but with yields well-down on average, the crop came to no harm. The fermentations were helped by cool weather and musts registered higher than average readings with excellent colour. It was clear at the end of the harvest that a fine vintage was in prospect.

Tasting Note: A broad amber colour with olive-green highlights. On the nose a complex variety of orange and marmalade, combined with a discreet vanilla oakiness and warm nutty notes of walnut and marzipan. The palate is very smooth and honeyed, leading to an apricot and fig finish: this is a big and lush port where the flavours linger deliciously. An absolutely amazing mouthful of port.

Taylor's Single Harvest Port 1966 is presented in a magnificent branded wooden box.
