About Taylor Fladgate 2017 Vintage Port

Taylor Fladgate is the aristocrat of Port wines. Always outstanding and rarely outdone. All grapes undergo the traditional foot treading method, ensuring their fullest expression. Following two years in wood, the wine is bottled unfiltered and will continue maturing for decades. 2017 is the second declared vintage in a row for Taylor Fladgate, it looks like they are really on a roll!


The Wine Advocate tasted a barrel sample and scored it 98-100 saying "The 2017 Vintage Port, not quite bottled when seen but the final blend, is a field blend aged for approximately 20 months in wood. It comes in with 100 grams of residual sugar. A step up (or two) on the 2016, this shows fine depth, more focus, vivid fruit and serious power. It's not particularly thick, austere or astringent, but this is built for the long haul. It is potentially a great Taylor's, effortlessly combining brilliant fruit and structure. It tastes great now (today, it is far more vivid than its Vinha Velha sibling), but the power makes this hard to drink today. So, have some patience. It will need some time, probably a lot more than indicated, and will likely last longer than indicated as well."
