About this deal

This is a classic example of aged Tawny Port with deliciously mellow scents of dried fruits, honeysuckle, grilled nuts and butterscotch. At 20 years aging in oak, the Port will have colours ranging from a reddish to golden Tawny, these exceptional wines are full of fruit and their flavours are more developed and concentrated due to the fact that the wine was aged in small oak casks. As a Tawny is already finished fermenting, it'll have a decent shelf life (6 months) as well, though you'll be forgiven for drinking it a lot quicker than that.

We love the toffee/vanilla orange rind nose; the attack is opulent and complex offering up spicy, nutty, fiery, tea flavours with a delicious mellow vanilla finish. For many, 20 year old tawny offers the perfect combination of vibrant fruit and nutty, aged character.

The unique flavours that are the hallmark of Portugal's indigenous grape varieties have become its trump card. Taylor’s blends its magnificent 20 year old tawny Ports from its extensive reserves of old cask aged Ports matured in the firm’s cool and tranquil cellars (known as ‘lodges’) in Oporto on Portugal’s Atlantic coast. If you stay in a Douro Quinta you are more than likely to find a bottle or two of this in the fridge.Along with the most popular varieties, there are regional specialties, such as Hondarrabi Zuri in the Basque Country, Marmajuelo in the Canary Islands and Zalema in Andalucia.

One of the finesttawny ports on the market, this bottle is a regular in our household andrepresents a real step up from the 10-year-old. A fresh-as-a-daisy 20-year-old that needs neither decanting, nor, in Sebastian Payne MW’s view, eking out once opened! The Douro is one of the wildest, most mountainous and rugged wine regions of Portugal, cut through in deep twists.On the palate, it is rich, softly sweet and smooth, perfectly balanced, with a long and elegant finish. Pairs extremely well with nuts, dried fruits and fruitcake, as well as vanilla ice cream and crème brûlée.

Although there is an enormous variety of different terroirs within the Douro Valley, this is essentially a sparsely populated, hot, arid region where grapes are grown on spectacularly steep terraced slopes. Lying across the mouth of theTagus river, the Península de Setúbal is a flat, sandy region with the exception of the Serra da Arrábida a short chain of mountains with clay and limestone soils.The Douro is one of the most beautiful wine regions in the world, and deservedly Portugal's best known, the Douro has quickly emerged to lead the way as the country's premium wine region and there is a real pioneering spirit amongst the winemakers here, port shippers included.
