Brand Taylor Fladgate
Deep ruby in colour, it has a potent nose of concentrated fruit, crammed with blackcurrant, plum and liquorice flavours. Its luscious texture is supported by a firm tannic structure giving the wine restrained elegance for which Taylor's Ports are famous. First Estate is an excellent introduction to the Taylor's style of intensely fruity but elegant and well balanced Ports. It is blended from full bodied young red wines from the Cima Corgo area, then mellowed by several years of ageing in oak vats. Sensational with a gooey chocolate fondant, or a piece of farmhouse cheddar. Taylor's First Estate Port is a classic reserve blend produced to commemorate the firm's acquisition in 1744 of its first property in the upper Douro Valley, the Casa dos Alambiques at Lugar das Lages.

Dusty, perfumed tannins are suspended in a ripe and fruity wine, its damson skin texture given an extra boost by tannins. Very dark, concentrated wine, full of character.

Supple and fruity, offering damson plum flavors that show some citrusy overtones, with a rich, spicy finish. Drink now through 2022.
