Port Basics White Rose









(Port) Wine of the month April 2022: Taylor Vintage Port 1945

Due to bottle shortage after WWII the whole Vintage 1945 was bottled by Taylors in Vila Nova de Gaia. This was to become a rule as late as 1974. Full transparent dark red colour. Incredibly young and powerful in the Nose with malt, coffee, toffee and floral-fresh notes. White pepper and a perfectly integrated acidity on the palate with chocolate, malt, coffee and a hint of mixed herbs. Multi-layered, very long aftertaste. Tasted with many other 1945s in Porto. 20/20
