Established in 1692, Taylor’s is one of the leading Port producers. The three Grade A vineyards give different characters to the final products, and shaped some of the best Ports that were enjoyed around the world. In 2014, Taylor’s has decided to make a limited release, each year, of a Single Harvest Port made 50 years previously. The release for 2019 is the sixth in the series: 1969 Single Harvest Port.

If you want to know why it is so rare, it’s better to understand how Port wine is made. Tawny Port is usually made by blending base wine from different ages, and labeled by average age such as 10 year old, 20 year old or 30 year old, single vintage is rarely seen in the market.

Port is a fortified wine, different winemaking methods developed into several categories. Tawny Port have aged in oak casks for a long time, the rate of oxidation is far more than the wines have aged in glass bottles. From this Port, you will easily understand the beauty of slow maturation. The colour has turned to deep mahogany due to oxidation. It shows nutty flavours with dried fruits, honey, syrup and milk nougats, supported by fresh acidity, which is great to pair with what you get inside the traditional candy box in Chinese New Year.

From now until April 30, 2019, purchase a bottle of TAYLOR'S SINGLE HARVEST PORT 1969 together with any product in the Taylor's Port series up to HK$2,500 (net amount after deducting all discounts), and you'll receive an instant HK$300 discount!
