Taylor’s 40 Year Old Tawny Port is aged in seasoned oak casks during which time it gradually takes on its characteristic amber ‘tawny’ colour and complex, smooth, luscious palate.

Taylor’s is one of the few remaining houses which still produces a 40 Year Old Aged Tawny Port and this rare style is made from grapes grown on Taylor’s own properties only.

Taylor's, which remains an independent family-run business since its inception around 300 years ago, is also the market brand leader. It is one of the earliest shippers to acquire vineyards to produce the wine themselves, rather than merely buying from winemakers and then maturing it, thus ensuring a name synonymous with quality.

”A superb wine, elegance and weight combined magisterially. It has all the right mature flavors, ripe fruit, intense marmalade and concentration. This is a wine with a great reputation, and the taste doesn't let that reputation down.” Wine Enthusiast

”Big, weighty and mouth filling, this is an aromatic Tawny that finishes with acidity and tension. Gripping on the finish, its flavors become more interesting as long as it sits in the glass (or on your palate).” Robert Parker
