A spectacular tawny port from leading producer Taylor's, this has been aged in wood for forty years, and those four decades of careful maturation have produced a port of incredible complexity on the nose and matchless drinkability on the silky-soft palate.
The first in a series of 50 year old ports from Taylor's - a 1964 Colheita. Blended from wines produced in a single harvest, this was aged in oak for the whole of its five decades of maturation, allowing complex spicy and nutty flavours to develop.
A special presentation pack from Taylor's, showcasing their ports with a half bottle of each of their four tawny ports between 10 and 40 years old. The total age of the wine in the set is 100 years, hence the 'Century of' moniker. Please note that these bottles are 37.5cl each.
A really unusual gem here - a long aged tawny port dating back to 1855, Taylor's Scion is from two casks which have been discovered by Taylor's and vatted together to produce one of the fortified wine events of the decade. Incredibly rare to see a pre-phylloxera port, let alone one in such reportedly amazing condition - this is sure to get plenty of tongues wagging.
