In 1692, an important chapter in the history of Port began. Job Bearsley, an English merchant, travelled to Portugal to venture into the wine business, founding the company we now know as Taylor Fladgate. Today, it is one of the oldest and most renowned Port producers, and its Ports are considered amongst the finest in the world.
The Fladgate 20 Year Old Tawny Porto is elegant, silky smooth, medium to full bodied, with firm acidity. It is fruity and dense with intense nut, chocolate, fig, dried apricot, mango, red fruit, toffee, almonds, butterscotch, and coffee flavors. The vibrant finish is a rush of yellow fruit sweetness with nutty overtones. Try with a blue cheese or lightly sweet dessert.
