Description & Technical Information
-
This 1967 is the fourth 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: After a cool summer (without any real heat in July or August), the grapes were still green and backward when picking began around 20th September. Both yields and sugar levels were low. Many picked too early (fearing a repeat of the rains which had marred the latter part of the previous three vintages) however warm weather continued into October and, unusually, the best grapes with higher sugar readings were picked last.

Tasting Note: 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 an abundance of nuttiness. A remarkably long finish mixed with more spice and walnut flavours.

Presented in a magnificent branded wooden box, Taylor's Single Harvest Port 1967 is the perfect 50th birthday present.

98/100
James Molesworth
“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.”

Wine Enthusiast
“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.”
