Taylor Fladgate 2009 Vintage Port, Quinta de Vargellas
Here is Taylor Fladgate Single-quinta, or single-vineyard, vintage Port. It is produced only in exceptional years in which a general vintage is not declared. Quinta de Vargellas has been part of the Taylor Fladgate estate for more than a century and is considered to be one of the top 100 vineyards in the world. It has the highest percentage of old vines of any quinta in the Douro, with 60% over 75 years old. All grapes undergo the traditional foot treading method, ensuring their fullest expression. Fermentation is halted by the addition of grape spirits before all the residual sugar has been fermented, creating a sweet, fortified wine. Following two years in wood, the wines are bottled unfiltered and will continue maturing for decade or more. Wine Advocate scored this 96 points saying "The 2009 Vinha Velha has wonderful intensity on the nose, although it is a little more aloof than the Taylorís, almost like a Bordeaux in the sense of holding back. It opens ajar with continued aeration, offering scents of black currant, blueberry and licorice, but the scents are controlled and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with a velvety smooth opening. This is plush and sweet with a touch of viscosity that lacquers the mouth. Just when you think it could become overpowering, it pulls back on the finish, which is wonderfully poised and pure, real minerality beginning to show through after 30 minutes in the glass. It needs another decade in bottle, but it patently has great potential." Extremely limited!
