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.
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.
