Take a trip back in time with this unprecedented 60-year-old vintage marina.
NEW YORK, February 3, 2021 – With the reissue of Taylor Fladgate’s 1961 Vintage Single Harvest Port (SRP $395; 130 cases available), connoisseurs can relive 1961, known throughout history as a “rebellious” year due to its cultural and ideological changes, as the first man to fly into space. Only 780 bottles of this unusual port, preserved for 60 years in their respective cellars, are available at retail in the United States.
According to Technical Director and Chief Winemaker David Guimarans, “The team at the Lodge has treated this base with care to ensure that it remains a fine example of Port from 1961. The aging process has certainly helped it reach a magical level of complexity and elegance.”
Taylor Fladgate owns one of the largest maturing stocks of Tawny Ports of any producer, including a collection of rare Single Harvest Ports. These are one year old, fully matured Ports in aged oak barrels, with the vintage indicated on the label.
TAYLOR FLADGATE 1961 SINGLE HARVESTING PORT
(20% ABV, 750 ml, 395 SRP)
Taylor Fladgate 1961 Single Harvest has a hazelnut brown core surrounded by a broad rim of pale gold with olive accents. The Port has a powerful nose of exceptional complexity and opulence, revealing many nuances and dimensions of flavor. A gentle redness of molasses, dried figs and raisins appears first, mingled with aromas of marzipan. Aromas of cedar and dried tobacco leaves follow, along with subtle spicy notes of black pepper, cardamom and a fleeting fresh hint of citrus. All of this is wrapped in a powerful aura of oak and vanilla aromas – a legacy of decades of barrel aging. In the mouth, the wine is dense, round and concentrated, with a thick, velvety texture. The port is quite full and sweet in the middle of the mouth, but then rises with a fresh hint of acidity on the finish, which is filled with lingering flavors of caramel, almond, orange marmalade and dried fruit. A beautifully balanced wine, the 1961 Single Harvest remains clean and fresh despite years of wood aging.
