Estate Notes

Taylor’s Vintage 20 Year Old Tawny NV Port was aged in cask and has a lovely silky texture.

Taylor’s 20 Year Old Tawny Port is aged in seasoned oak casks during which time it gradually takes on its characteristic amber ‘tawny’ colour and develops its trademark complex, mellow flavours and the smooth, luscious palate.

The Tawny is a blend of old cask aged reserve Ports matured in Taylor's cellars (‘lodges’) in Oporto. In the 20 Year Old tawny, the fruit has mellowed further than in the 10 Year Old, and the spicy, nutty aromas from ageing are more powerful and intense.

Reviews

"Rich, with a spicy nose, this offers flavors of fig, dried apricot, mango and ginger. Complex and elegant, delivering concentrated crème brûlée and tropical fruit notes that linger on the vibrant and buttery finish." Wine Spectator

“It is my opinion that Taylor's tawny ports are the best of their type. When tasted against other tawnys, they all exhibit more aromatic personalities, greater fruit and ripeness, and a wonderful sweetness and length. I prefer the richer, more vibrant Twenty Year Old Tawny.” Robert Parker
