Taylor Fladgate is a renowned producer of fine Port wines from the Douro region in Portugal. Their collection includes a range of high-quality fortified wines, including vintage, tawny, and ruby Ports. Taylor Fladgate's Ports are made using traditional methods, with grapes grown on the steep terraced vineyards of the Douro Valley. The grapes are hand-picked and then crushed by foot in lagares, granite tanks that allow for gentle extraction of the juice. The wines are then aged in oak barrels to develop their unique flavors and aromas.
Taylor Fladgate is particularly well known for its Vintage Ports, which are made only in the best years and can age for decades in the bottle. They also produce excellent tawny Ports, which are aged for many years in oak casks to develop a nutty, caramel flavor. Overall, the Taylor Fladgate collection is a testament to the rich tradition of Port wine-making, and a celebration of the unique terroir of the Douro Valley.
