Taylor Fladgate Tawny Port 20 year old
A complex, wood aged wine, this 20-year-old has a perfumed, dry style. Walnut and spice flavors blend together with the spirit and mature acidity. It's rich, with just the right amount of age.
A warm, flattering style, with date, ginseng, toffee, caramel and mulled raisin flavors that take on a plump feel as they move through, ending with a flash of green tea that keeps this just lively enough. Leans toward the sweeter side and will have lots of fans for sure. Drink now. 15,300 cases made, 8,000 cases imported.
The 20-Year Old Tawny (2017 bottling) has more complexity on the nose than the 10-Year Old: sage, red fruit, rosehip syrup and a touch of dried fig. The palate is medium-bodied with a lightly spiced entry, clove and white pepper mixed with a light curry note. There is fine harmony and elegance towards the finish with good depth and precision, completing just a great Tawny Port. Tasted at the Big Fortified Tasting in London.
