Winemaker's Notes:

Taylor Fladgate Quinta de Vargellas reflects the classic Taylor style in a port that is slightly lighter in body and concentration and somewhat quicker to mature than vintage port. Otherwise identical in its palatal characteristics to a declared wine, it is rich, mellow and exceptionally full-bodied, with flavors of black fruit, coffee and walnuts, and the unmistakable Taylor backbone. Superb on its own, it is also enjoyable with the traditional accompaniments of stilton cheese and nuts.

About Taylor Fladgate:

Taylor's is now into its fourth century: one of the very oldest of the Port companies. It is the last totally independent company of the original British Port houses-and is still family owned and managed. It is run today from Oporto by descendants of the Yeatman and Fladgate families, both of which have been partners in the firm since the 1830s. For more than 300 years Taylor's name has been synonymous with consistent excellence in Port.
