Taylor's 2000 Vintage Port is drinking beautifully right now, with plenty more development to come in bottle.
Taylor's vintage ports are renowned for their massive structure, concentration of flavour and distinctively masculine style. Taylor's Port is also renowned for being amongst the longest lived of all ports.
Taylor's, which remains an independent family-run business since its inception around 300 years ago, is also the market brand leader. It is one of the earliest shippers to acquire vineyards to produce the wine themselves, rather than merely buying from winemakers and then maturing it, thus ensuring a name synonymous with quality.
2000 was an excellent Port vintage, one of the very best in decades, with perfect harvest conditions resulting in grapes packed with rich fruit and tannin.
