Taylor's 1983 Vintage Port

Vintage port made by Taylor's has an incredible capacity for long, slow development in bottle and the 1983 has taken a full four decades to achieve its goal of drinkability. It was worth the wait!

Producer Tasting Note:

Deep cherry, burgundy colour, fading at the rim. Rich, jammy harmonious fruit. Stylish, aromatic, concentrated fruit flavours. Raisin, chocolate; plum jam. Medium-full bodied. Rounded tannins. Complex, fleshy wine.

Critics' Tasting Notes:

"The 1983 Vintage Port is up for a status check. It is in a pretty good place now. It's been as hard as nails over the years. Not anymore. With softened tannins and a medley of old Port flavors on the finish, this is both sensual and delicious, with velvety texture and an irresistible finish. It doesn't have that hard edge any more, but it does wake up and become more intense with some air. At least from this bottle, it comes together rather promptly and drinks well. It's lacking just a bit of firmness, but its complex flavors and general demeanor make it rather sexy. The lingering finish seals the deal. It can keep going for quite some time--it is Port and they tend not to drop off the table if well stored--but this is a nice time to dive in."

94/100 points, Mark Squires, WINE ADVOCATE, December 2015

"Mid tawny. A smoky, minerally nose with restrained, dried red fruit and layers of incense and spices that emerge. Demands attention to see its qualities. Lots of fruit density to balance the still-firm tannins, typical of the house style. Well-integrated finish with good length. A very fine 1983. (TJ)"

Perfect with the finest Christmas Stilton.
