Taylor’s 30 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 30 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.

”This has that wonderful concentration of flavor, the molasses, the touch of treacle and the extra complexity that you don't always get with young Tawnies. Its combination of power, concentration and complexity also means that it lingers endlessly on the finish. It's one of those wines you will be able to smell on anything it touches for much of the evening. That's worth the price of admission for me. This is wonderfully constructed with that long, intensely flavorful finish.” eRobertParker.com
