Taylor’s 1863 Single Harvest Port Wine
Taylor’s Single Harvest 1863 is produced from a reserve of very rare and valuable Port wines that are aged in casks and belong to the Taylor’s collection. For this reason, Taylor’s Single Harvest 1863 represents a unique piece in the history of wine, which, working as a time capsule, will allow you to have a fascinating view of the distant past. Moreover, the 1863 vintage was one of the best in the 19th century and produced before what was the last great vintage port before the phylloxera spread to the entire Douro region. Taylor’s Single Harvest 1863 was launched as an exclusive limited edition, as it corresponds to just two barrels of wine. A wine with an extraordinary depth and structure that continues to surprise by the numerous layers and aromatic dimension.

Deep mahogany color with a fine amber-olive border.
Immense in size, complexity, freshness and opulence. In the mouth, the wine is in perfect balance, with sweetness and acidity in perfect harmony, and with wonderfully integrated brandy. Then the wine releases as if in an explosion of soft flavors that are evidenced by the lively acidity that gives it an endless ending.
Very rich aroma, with an overwhelming concentration. Endless, almost to meditate. A succession of subtle aromas of spices is evident against a dense bottom of molasses. Notes of sawn oak and vanilla give way to notes of nutmeg, black pepper and ginger. Gradually the rich and sumptuous aromas of aging appear; nuts, marzipan, caramel and mocha, followed by opulent notes of fig and plum cake.
