Taylors Quinta de Vargellas Vinha Velha Vintage Port 2017 75cl 19.5% ABV
Taylors Quinta de Vargellas Vinha Velha Vintage Port 2017
An impenetrable ruby black core with a narrow purple rim.
In keeping with Vargellas Vinha Velha, the nose is beautifully balanced and complete, revealing multiple layered aromas as it opens up in the glass. A delightful combination of dense, dark berries, with brambly woodland fruit, cassis and black cherry aromas. This rich fruit is tempered by an attractive flinty, mineral edge and a discreet pungency of wild herbs and cedar wood. As the wine evolves, evocative aromas of beeswax, leather and cigars emerge. The palate is supported by thick granular tannins and packed with dense black and red berry fruit flavour that rises to a crescendo on the finish.
A wine of majestic scale and proof that 2017 was an exceptional year for old vines. Awarded 18.5/20 by Jancis Robinson.
Perfect paired with walnuts, dried apricots and figs and blue cheese.
