Taylor Fladgate 1965 Single Harvest
Taylor plans to release a Limited Edition Tawny from a 50-year-old single harvest each year. There’s a buzz of freshness surrounding the flavors in this 1965, incorporating the kind of tension you might find in an equally mature vintage of Taylor Vargellas, parallel in its mineral structure and schist-inflected tannins. Here, the edges have been polished smooth by cask aging, but there are still edges, and there is still fruit—plummy fruit layered with floral notes of honey and bee pollen. Brisk and graceful, this carries the terroir of the Douro directly into the succulence of Tawny Port.
