2017 "The Classic Collection" Taylor Fladgate, Fonseca & Croft, Trio Pack Vintage Port

1 Bottle each of Taylor's, Fonseca and Croft in a wooden presentation box. Vintage Port 2017 3 x 75cl

1 x Taylors Vintage Port 2017 (75cl) - A blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca from Quinta de Vargellas (the ‘backbone’) as well as from Terra Feita and Junco. TA 4.52 g/l, RS 100 g/l, pH 3.86. 11,500 cases.

"Deep purple. Dark-fruited, dusky, smoky, full of blackberry and blueberry fruit. Like a bottomless well of fruit, so deep and smooth. Power and polish to the densely layered but welcoming tannins, the power hidden by the fruit depth. As it opens on the nose, there’s a more wild elderberry character and more chocolate on the finish. Amazing length, the tannins creating a paradoxically dry, savoury finish. Even with all this exceptional fruit, it seems more corseted on the palate than some in this vintage. Fladgate MD Adrian Bridge suggested this wine had an aroma of orange blossom and he is right, but I am not sure I would never have identified it without his prompt."

1 x Fonseca Vintage Port 2017 (75cl) - A blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca from Quinta do Panascal and the two Pinhão Valley estates, Cruzeiro and Santo António. TA 4.1 g/l, pH 3.9, RS 98 g/l. 8,100 bottles.

"Deepest purple. Wild, perfectly ripe small black berries like elderberry but also the lush sweetness of ripe blackberries plus a stony, rocky edge and just a touch charry. Lush, plush and exotic on the palate, deep-pile, compact, smooth tannins, just enough freshness to balance the rich generosity. The finish is beautifully dry-tasting, the tannins melting on the long finish."

1 x Croft Vintage Port 2017 (75cl) - At least 50% of the fruit is from Roêda Serikos vineyard, a south-west-facing terrace on the right bank near Pinhão. Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca. TA 4.71 g/l, pH 3.78, RS 101 g/l. 3,900 cases.

"Deep purple with wide purple rim. The most red-fruited of all the Fladgate 2017s so far but lots of sweet black cherry too. Much more gentle on the palate than the Fonseca and Taylor's and less obvious length, or at least much softer and chocolatey as it fades on the palate. This is all about the fruit and has lovely freshness and lively fruit purity. Mouth-watering finish of sweet-sour cherry flavours."
